Sounds like a bit of a mess. First step would be to finalize any windows updates that are in the process of being applied. After that is done, make sure that you do a full reboot since it is likely that the patching will not be finalized yet.

Next, ensure that the services are started. Most likely the SQL services are not starting which is preventing you from connecting to the database.
