Pentax K3ii 1.12 Firmware Update Not Correct?

I see on the Ricoh site there's an update for the new 16-50mm PLM lens, from 1.11 to 1.12. When I download it, it only is 1.11. Has anyone else experienced a problem with that? I was able to update the firmware in my K3iii and K1ii. It appears Ricoh didn't upload the right firmware update? I went ahead and processed it but the camera still shows 1.11.

My K-3ll is OK and showing Ver 1.12
After unziping you will get fwdc230b.bin , you need to place it into the root directory on SD card and do update.

I could install version 1.12 as well (did it a few minutes ago), so no problem here. I upgraded from version 1.11. In case there are several official sources to get the file fwdc230b.bin (which I doubt), here is where I downloaded it : Latest PENTAX K-3? Firmware Update : Software Downloads | RICOH IMAGING

I see what I did! I put the update file in card slot 2 vs 1 (I was in k3iii mindset where the card slots are reversed), and surprisingly the prior update was still on the card in slot 1.
