You can edit a file in the Reader's original installer to run (otherwise it detects it already has the latest firmware. I don't remember what it was, but it's in the forums if you search.

Try running the firmware flasher issued from Sony. It's definitely still available and you would have needed it to follow these steps anyway.

The Sony Updater is an archive: decompress it into a directory and edit the file: PRSVersion.dat:

eBookUpdater/updaterAssets/updaterAssets/PRSVersion.dat

That file contains a string 110018040 - change it to 110018041

The Sony Updater should then run and update your Reader.
