Trouble updating wii u
I fear my only solution is buying a 32GB Wii U and doing a system transfer, which would cost 0 and yield zero other benefits. It's just a hunch and is based on you not having the disc version, but that's the only potential solution I can think of.
Is there no way to download an update directly to the hard drive when it's not there already? “I am a brother to dragons and a companion to owls."

When the download is complete, you will receive a dialog on the Wii U Menu detailing the steps to install the update.

It's just a hunch and is based on you not having the disc version, but that's the only potential solution I can think of. I had the exact same problem yesterday — I downloaded the new DLC and went to launch Smash (disc version), but the game wouldn't launch because I did not have enough space to download the update.
Like you, my Smash data was on my nearly full internal Wii U HD, but I have an external HD with plenty of space.
