Channel search blank screens with repeated network error & continued update prompts.

I unboxed a roku tonight I bought 03/13/2021 and tried to set it up.  It is perpetually stuck on channel search, with blank screens to "download" that is forever loading and never does.  I have tried to update software twice -which was done the first time it connected to the internet, then had a network error and said to go to home to add channels manually, which I tried to do.  That’s where I kept getting a persistent "loading" notice with no results.  So I manually searched for software update without result.  How do I solve this problem?   I have multiple rokus and had limited problems with them.  I have never had this happen.
