Attempted to install this update on a brand new aluminium wireless keyboard that came with a brand new 21.5-inch iMac. Keyboard was 'stuttering' by repeating random characters without being touched. Firmware version in System Profiler indicated keyboard update was necessary. Bluetooth in System Prefs shows Keyboard is paired, but Firmware Update reports no keyboard. Tried another brand new aluminium keyboard from a recently purchased 27-inch iMac, same result. (Yes, I am in Sydney, Australia, where we spell it aluminIUM).
