It sounds like Office Update is looking for the install file just to confirm that you have the media and the install is legit. One thing you can do is run a search of your hard drive to see if whoever you bought the computer from happened to copy the Office disk to the computer. Failing that you will need a copy of the disk for this to update. Is ther someone you know that maight have a disk you can borrow?
