KitKat Update after update

I recently downloaded the kitkat update linked from there and did a fast boot install. This morning I checked my Nexus 7 and it said I had a system update to 4.4 available to download and install.

I was under the impression these were exactly the same update. Why would it upgrade my upgrade?

Also the installation I have has glitch kernel installed. I thought everything had to be stock to get the update?

And by the way I know people are tracking who is getting the OTA update and where. I live in Iwakuni Japan .

KitKat KRT16O was the first release. KitKat KRT16S is the update.

You probably installed KRT16O and got the KRT16S via OTA update.

That's because the KRT16S kernel is exactly the same as the KRT16O kernel so it wasn't included in the ota update. That allowed your existing kernel to stay in place and not get overwritten.
