Apparently, the "Update Now" button only works if the reader is already connected to the server.
I just experienced this on my EBW1150!
After the 'Online Bookshelf' tab is tapped, I could not use the 'Bookstore' menu item (infinite searching...). The only thing that worked was the 'Update Now' menu item. Exactly like above!
To fix this, I changed the reader's Phone Connection settings to not
'Use HTTP proxy' nor 'Use proxy for USB'. Then I connected to the bookshelf and let my reader 'call home' (the ETI servers). I explorered the choices there a bit and then returned to my original reader Phone Connection settings (checked those two choices again).
Now, everything works "as advertised"!
I attach before and after logs to see the different situations.
