Yes, I have tried to update BIOS by using a flash drive as per the manual. At the end of the process, the blinking lights near to flash dive is supposed to be turned off but didn't. its remain stable
That video should help...he's got some pointers for really common problems like naming the file in ALL CAPS.

But after the update also be sure to reset CMOS right away.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Use isopropyl alcohol and a fine bristle brush to remove the thermal paste from that quadrant of the CPU pins. Please be gentle and do not use force to remove the paste, you can risk bending the pins.

And what should I do on the first issue? no BIOS..CPU troubleshooting light on the mobo turned on
B550's may not have a BIOS that supports Ryzen 5000 CPU's...so first thing to do is make sure you're on the latest BIOS.

You'd normally need a CPU that board can use to boot into BIOS to update it. But it looks to me like that board has a BIOS Flashback feature (the button on the I/O panel). READ IN YOUR MANUAL how to download, copy to a USB stick and use the BIOS flashback.

Here is a video that shows you the process too, along with some pointers:
