Nook doesn't automatically recognize update zip

I got a replacement Simple Touch. It came with 1.1.0 firmware, while the latest firmware is 1.2.1

Following these instructions I placed
nook_1_2_update.zip into the root of the nook 256MB drive. Instructions say "6. Your NOOK will automatically recognize the file after a few minutes when it goes to sleep mode, and proceed to install the updates." But this didn't happen. I waited for it to sleep few times, I also rebooted it.

Why it doesn't find the upgrade itself as instructions say?
How to force the upgrade?

Have you got the zip file from the right country? You need to download the UK file from the UK site and the US one from the US site, they won't take otherwise.

Hm, it updated after 3½ hours, definitely not after a few minutes.
I am not sure why they design the update process like this.
