If I understand correctly, you're expecting the update tools to
automatically pick up the latest OS image and install it. That's not
what happens. You have to download the OS image yourself and specify
it to tthe flasher.  You can get the OS images at
http://maemo.org/downloads/OS2008/ - look at the bottom of the
right-hand column under "OS & SDK". You'll need your tablet's 12-digit
product ID. The product ID is printed on the tablet's packaging and on
the label underneath the tablet's battery, and displayed in the
Control Panel (field WLAN MAC address in Control Panel > Device >
About Product).

HTH,
