the integrated update is used to install updates automatically (Philips will PUSH new firmware). They will do it, if the specific update solves completely a issue (as far as I see, this is not the case at the moment -> sound issue). If a new update is pushed from Philips you will get a message (like on BDPs) that a new update is available.
The integrated manual update feature can also been used to install small fixes (not complete firmwares) - e.g. integrated manual update.
If this is true, from my point of view this is a bug.

IMHO if there are ANY updates available it should always be possible to request (and get) an update over wlan. Otherwise there is absolutely no sense for manually updates over wlan. Automatic updates should of course be fully successful tested updates.
