Default Hard Reset or Software Update?

I powered off my Nexus. Then held down the volume down button and the Power button. No other prompts came up and it immediately went into a screen that said Downloading Do not turn off target (see attached). It has been stuck that way for over 1/2 hour. Any ideas?
