You're at college right now? If so, you might not be able to update as some block P2P connections.

hmm.. I've played the game multiple times while here in the last few weeks, it just won't let me download the update? or maybe they recently blocked it. Idk.. guess I'll just have to wait till i go back home to try to update

If you're really interested there are plenty of ways to get around it. Direct download of patches (user uploaded), upgrading on a laptop offsite in a coffee shop or fast food place, **** even just asking the campus IT department to open certain ports can work.

You shouldn't have any problems playing the game, as it uses the standard protocols. Updating however, uses a P2P system which a lot of schools ban or throttle.

*EDIT* Bsphil has the best short term solution for you, assuming the connection you jack into is quick. If it's not, well you're screwed to only getting major updates at home or via a friends ISP. Since we're on the subject, I'm really dissapointed that none of the recent "major" interviews with Yoshi even asked about the tobic of downloads. Surely, ZAM at the very least, sites have had tons of threads about the updater...
