Customer Question

Hello.
My I Pad said to "Update " so I pressed it. It asks for Apple ID and Password ***** activate. Keeps talking about I Phone. I don't have an I Phone. I put in Apple ID but don't have a password. Says the one I used for ICloud. What's that? Don't do ICloud. Why can't I use my I Pad now? It's never had a previous owner. Had it from new.
