This was my problem. Reading the instructions, by the way it was worded, I expected to see "Update Kindle" as one of the settings there on the Settings page, not a menu item. So when the instructions said, "Go Home, click Menu, Select Settings, Click Menu again," I read it as "Select Settings and Click Menu Again" in order to access the Settings page. I did not read it as "Select Settings, then once you are on the Settings page click Menu again and Select "Update Your Kindle".
So, I never clicked Menu a second time. Once I did that, and from the Settings page, it became obvious. A sensible programmer would have put the Update Your Kindle feature there on the Settings page somewhere so you could see it instantly when you loaded the Settings page.
