have you had a look inside this update.pup lol waow? try using PS3 Multi Tool to look at its vision and build number for quickness.
No applicable update data found can also sometime happens when the ps3 gets it usb knickers in a twist, not because the pup is no good, put the usb in the ps3 go to the game utility to do with your game save and PS/ps2 and pop in and out of the menus until you see the clock hands spin, then try again. this does work sometimes for me when the usb is not recognized.
Or put usb stick in pc mount then unmount and try again.

Because I get almost every one I know at some time ask me for help on some technical things, I reply by saying I am on the lookout for ps3's for spars. maybe you should try the same and get a stock in.
I now have 8 ps3's as from this afternoon with 2 more coming on Friday, 4 of them had broken BDVD drives 1 was bricked on 2.42 and 1 I swapped fully working bdvd as well, for a box 360 I fixed with the tea towel and a good clean. lol
