The update the original poster was referring to had nothing to do with Uconnect and is not the one from the Uconnect site. It is a dealer installed engine computer update that can't be installed via USB.

The radio was acting up so they ordered a new one. Anyways the uconnect updates all by itself. The flash for the ecm is done at the dealer.

Yup there is, the tech told me he wasn't sure what the update was for due to the lack of a description but after driving 475km I notice that my fuel economy has greatly improved. Might be in my head but after all, I saved 25$ in gas.
