Issues with Olympus updater today

Hi has anyone else been trying to update their firmware yesterday or today? Iíve just bought a second EMI Mk II and although new it needs the firmware updated. Each time I attempt it struggles to connect to server at Olympus. We tried with other cameras and same issue. Our internet is working perfectly and the updater software is fine - connects to camera and saves settings.
Hopefully this is just a glitch at the Oly server end.

Yes, there does appear to be a problem with the Olympus server at the moment. It is mentioned at the end of this thread.

I just started OV3 and checked for software updates. It told me that I am using the latest version, so it seems that the server may be working correctly again now.
