it is being hacked...STOP port forwarding...if it is not a china region camera, then update the firmware..if it is a china region camera, updating the firmware will brick it..

You do need to supply a bit more info to get helpful responses.

Does it complete the file transmit?
If so, what does the status show next?

Normally, after the file transmit, and a successful update, it's important to shut down the tftp server so it doesn't do the update all over again.

It does complete the file transmit.
But it does not do the update - presumably it's rejecting the firmware as not valid for the model.

This is the firmware for the model you have listed : DOWNLOAD PORTAL
But that will only be accepted if the camera is not a China region device, and the version tried is the same or higher that the previous version (downgrade is blocked).
Was the camera bought as updateable?

there is no downgrade for this model, but will happily run a Chinese firmware
