Just the location: http://www.fritzserver.org/updates/gui11.msi

See the following post on the Hiarcs forum:

I would avoid the update. Unless you've got some major issues, that is. If things are working fine for you, skip the update. The updated did nothing but cause me headaches.

I still would like F11 to work in "Explain all moves" mode.

The update is not official, AFAIK.
The server does not offer an update.

Chessbase support also provided the link to me.

When I installed the update, all of a sudden all of my Fruit engines didn't load, and neither did my Zappa Mexico engine. Everything locked up when I tried to use those engines.

I had to uninstall the update and Fritz 11 and do a complete re-install.

What a hassle!

I never install updates unless they are published in Chessbase magazin and/or recommended by the server, based on experience.

Sounds like good advice.
