On the Lumia 520 you can fix this by removing the battery and connecting the phone to your charger.

Make sure you are logged in to the Nokia Account and Windows Account before you start the download and that if you are using the Family Set Up, your age is set to bypass the app's age restrictions.

I've updated and after that no access to WhatsApp?

I've uninstalled and reinstalled WhatsApp. If I tap on screen, it blinks to open, but does not open WhatsApp

When you uninstall WhatsApp, you have to turn your phone off and then on again. If you did not do this, uninstall properly. The problem may still persist so connect to WiFi the minute your phone boots up and then open WhatsApp. Do not open it with just data for the first time because you will be loading all your previous messages and other data from the app.
