Ok, that's OTA. You could try resetting the device via the pinhole. If that doesn't work then download the ICS leak (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1510706) and rename it to "update". After that, place it on your external sd card and boot into recovery.

Your sd card is fine. Your recovery seems to be corrupted. Do you still get the error after resetting it (via pinhole)?
