Troubleshooting - No Applicable update data was foundLots of guys tried all the possible ways that they could do and then they were sure that they had it saved correctly. Initially, they even saved PlayStation update system software [Latest PS3 firmware] to SD card and tried with adapter, then on DVD-R or DVD-RW, but still no luck. Then they swapped out an HDD from an old YOLD 40GB, still no luck, they played around with formatting and installing update system software for hours.
Then got referred from Sony PC support website and had an FAT CECH M03 YOLD (love to Sony) HDD which had a lot of data on it, so they were reluctant to put it in PS3 SLIM as it would instantly format it and probably gives another error message "Can't find HDD..." etc etc. Moreover, some of them are also tried with SAFE MODE.

- In that "/PS3/" folder you need to have a sub-folder named "UPDATE"
- In that "/PS3/UPDATE/" sub-folder you need a file named "PS3UPDAT.PUP"
(upper-case yet again and see this name carefully, its UPDAT not UPDATE)
- So the local pathname for the update file on that drive must be:
