There's a new update.xml format, i was able to find out by enabling app.update.log and seeing the full url in the web console. Here it is, for the chilean version:

Code: Select all
<updates>
    <update type="minor" displayVersion="53.0" appVersion="53.0" platformVersion="53.0" buildID="20170413192749" detailsURL="https://www.mozilla.org/es-CL/firefox/53.0/releasenotes/" actions="showURL" openURL="https://www.mozilla.org/es-CL/firefox/53.0/whatsnew/?oldversion=%OLD_VERSION%">
        <patch type="complete" URL="http://yourwebserver/firefox-53.0.complete.mar" hashFunction="SHA512" hashValue="509613f6ad208b5d4b39e1e802d16fc890256e6899a08b696c1bc516993582d19ab68f28a01229670ca335ff9c4ff90b457b8a248fae5b1df2d68e306bcf7c7e" size="52516576"/>
    </update>
</updates>


I was able to update a virtual machine with that new xml, but another one somehow kept downloading the update from the aus5 server even after having the same config values overridden.
