I captured those logs with "adb logcat". The log of the update process itself can be found after rebooting in /cache/recovery/last_log (root permissions necessary).
Last night, I was pretty sure that you and me were in a similar situation: we were offered an update, it failed because we had modified or deleted system apps, and after restoring those apps, we were told our system was "up to date". (I actually hoped if I waited long enough you would find a solution that worked for me, too. *g*)
This morning, the A500 offered to try the update again - they might have some kind of rate limiting in place that will block updates for a couple of hours if you try it to often...?
Anyway, the update failed again. I guess I didn't find the correct versions of those stupid "LinkTo*" files:
Verifying current system...

The SHA1 checksum of the "LinkToAdobeFlash.odex" I found is:
# sha1sum LinkToAdobeFlash.odex
If anyone can point me to an archive of system apps for a 1.112.01_EMEA_CUS7 device, I would appreciate it.
(BTW, for those who are wondering why we, the idiots who have this problem, trashed their system in the first place: I used Titanium Backup to back up all apps, and to delete a select few of them - "Why would I need to keep a link to Facebook?" Depending on your language, Titanium Backup will not be totally clear about the fact that it doesn't back up system apps, only their data, but it will allow you to shoot yourself in the foot by letting you delete those apps anyway. I guess some of us lost a few toes in the process. By now, I know I probably should've "frozen" those apps instead.)
Update: Found all I needed, here:
