In the file, you use the sudo rpi-update line. It's current Raspberry Pi practice not to use this unless you REALLY need it as it can bring in a non-working kernel (i.e. the latest bleeding edge version, which is not guaranteed to work).

My thoughts are that it is not actually required once you have done the apt-get update/upgrade cycle.
