Most likely something is blocking dns SRV requests (which is what
FreeBSD-update uses to find the mirrors). I used to have this problem
due to a misconfigured dnsmasq install. I fixed it but my problem is the
reason that update.freebsd.org has an A record of its own now. Because
of this it should not cause an impact on the update process, and you
shouldn't need to change update to update1 anymore.
It would not surprise me if your problems are related to using the addon
freebsd-update rather than the built-in, which you apparently overwrote
with the addon one (the original is in the sources, or on the CVS). It
could be unrelated, but it is an easily identifiable misstep.
If you cannot get freebsd-update working, you could update using a 6.4 cd.
Also, there is nothing wrong with the FreeBSD servers, as I just updated
a few seconds ago:
athlon# freebsd-update -r 6.4-RELEASE upgrade
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 1 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 6.3-RELEASE from update1.FreeBSD.org...
Fetching metadata index... done.
Inspecting system... done.
The following components of FreeBSD seem to be installed:

kernel/generic src/base src/bin src/contrib src/crypto src/etc src/games

src/sbin src/secure src/share src/sys src/tools src/ubin src/usbin
world/catpages world/dict world/doc world/games world/info
Does this look reasonable (y/n)?
