Mine updated this afternoon...at a snail's pace, occasionally stalling.

Just as I was shutting down last night I received a further update notification so 2 updates in the space of a few hours (unusual) quite likely loaded their servers.

I gave up trying to allow it to update and downloaded the installer, at best the patcher was hitting 9kB/s most of the time
