Oh. If I understand you correctly, you wish to force-update the firmware over the network. OK. Here's a tip that seems to have worked for others and I've also used once:
Make sure Auto Updates are enabled in that Product Support/Contact Sony menu (the last option listed).
Make sure your TV is connected to your network and IP assigned.
Go to the Network Settings in the XMB and force an update to the internet content - there's an option for that down the list.
Shut off your TV and wait for about 15 to 20 minutes.
If that doesn't do it, it will update overnight with about 90% probability.

Unfortunately there isn't an update firmware now over network
option. The TV needs to be off with auto-updates enabled. That's the best you get.
