Hey Mr, it's very possible that you'll need to use one of those two devices to update, but first, it might be worth trying to update via USB (I wasn't sure from your post if you've tried this, or if you were trying to use a USB as a memory unit). Can you try following step 5 on this page to see if it allows you to update?

One or other of those are indeed required to get the Update, as the Update can't fit in the Xbox 360's Internal Memory (I'm not referring to the Slim's 4GB Internal). And even if you could Update without those, it would be pointless as the Gamer Profile, Game Saves, etc. Require a Memory Unit or a Xbox 360 Hard Drive. You could however use a USB Flash Drive as a Memory Unit, and it would work. That's what I used before i got a 120GB Hard Drive for it.

^ agree with the posts above, you'll need a HDD or memory unit for the updates. HDD being the better option in my opinion
