Are there any files in /tmp/updates/?  Perhaps it's being downloaded but
your updates image is not constructed correctly and therefore the files
are not getting used.

What format is your updates image?  How did you construct it?

It can be named anything you'd like as long as you pass the right
updates= parameter.
