There was an errata notice "[FreeBSD-Announce] FreeBSD Errata Notice 
FreeBSD-EN-14:04.kldxref" on 2014-05-13 (one of four that day).

I did nothing special to see the p6 update, just:
# freebsd-update fetch
# freebsd-update install
# reboot

I'm using the default values in freebsd-update.conf, do you maybe have a 
non-default ServerName set?

Not that it should matter (the errata itself references both 
architectures), but I use amd64, not i386.
