This is NOT correct! I have sucessfully downloaded and installed the updates, including the recent one (I think there was one before that, some time ago as well).
I'm in Sweden. I was in Sweden when I downloaded the update. Actually, just to check nothing has changed I'm downloading it right now!
I do the update by sideloading, since I keep the device WiFi off all the time.

(Any warranty issues of course has to be resolved in USA, since the device isn't not meant for international sales.)

Edit: I'd still recommend Sony for international users, but sometimes Nooks can be had a "too good to refuse"-prices, and should that be the case it will work very well even oustide USA.
