A long time ago my Nexus 4 was doing an OTA update and crashed midway through. Now when I try to power it on it shows the google symbol then a standing Android with its chest open and a progress bar under it. The progress bar says "Installing System Update...". Then when about 25% through (A few seconds) the Android is laying down with its chest open and a red triangle with a exclamation mark over the Andriod. The screen says "Error!". If I wait a few minutes then it repeats this process.
I have searched the internet for long hours without finding any solution. I sadly don't have USB de-bugging on or my problem would have been solved long ago.
I currently have Ubuntu 16.04 and Windows 7 and I can't seem to mount the Nexus on either one. When I enter recovery mode it has the same dead Andriod and it says "No Command". I have factory-reset it and wiped the cache partition but neither helped in anyway.
I am not sure but I believe to update from ADB I need USB de-bugging activated and the Nexus needs to be connected to my computer. (Both things I can't do) All of the solutions I find need USB de-bugging enabled and I can't find any way of activating it while it is in it's current state. When I load fastboot mode this is what it says in the bottom.

I don't know if that will help but I'll put it here anyway. I think that is all and I greatly appreciate any help given.
