That is not the same thing. It is looking for "8.2-PRERELEASE": Your
system is not on a binary release (a RELEASE, a BETA, or a RC) and
cannot (regularly) be updated by freebsd-update.
I have done freebsd-updates 8.1-RELEASE -> 8.2-BETA1 -> 8.2-RC1 ->
8.2-RC2 on amd64 successfully (as well as 8.2-RC1 -> 8.2-RC2 on i386).
The bits are all there.
For 8.2-RC3 and 7.4-RC3 the amd64 signatures are missing while the i386
ones are there: http://update4.freebsd.org/8.2-RC3/ Both amd64 and i386
are there for 8.2-RC2 (and every other RELEASE, BETA, and RC):
Interestingly, while the signature is missing, the binary patches are
there for amd64 (and i386): http://update4.freebsd.org/to-8.2-RC3/
