Camera 8.2 RC for Photoshop CC and Photoshop CS6 available on Adobe Labs
This thread at the ACR forum might interest you:
The only reason to update CS6 ACR version 8.1 to any newer version of ACR for CS6 is if you get a new camera Raw format support that is your current CS6 ACR version 8.1. Adobe stated that the only support they will add to CS6 ACR version is support for newer Cameras RAW formats. Additional updates made in ACR for CC users will not be available when your a CS6 user. Adobe like to ruffle users feathers like this they believe it will encourage users to fly blindly into the cloud. However more and more users seem to become disenchanted with Adobe behavior.
JJ, you're wrong on this.
Bug fixes are included in both 8.1 and 8.2RC for CS6 as well as for CC.
Bug fixes to all versions of ACR and of the DNG Converter traditionally go unannounced and unheralded. Updating is a must.
Check out the link to the ACR thread I mentioned:

Bug Fixes Adobe oxymoron
Normally, I would agree 100%. But, in my experience, in the case of Thomas Knoll's ACR team, I don't think this applies.
Yes Thomas is on that team. I wonder how he feels about Adobe's treatment of his baby these days.
To everyone who contributed: thank your for helping me. I will install the 8.2RC. I apologize for not responding sooner, because of communication problems.
Yes Thomas is on that team.
He is the head of the ACR team.
Somewhere I read that he failed to convince Adobe to pay him a lump sum for the what is now Photoshop way at the beginning. Instead, Adobe insisted on "just" paying him royalties in perpetuity.
They both underestimated the potential of Photoshop at that time, and I strongly suspect Tomas Knoll is now very happy that Adobe didn't buy the application outright, as he continues to benefit from the arrangement.
To everyone who contributed: thank your for helping me. I will install the 8.2RC…
Hope you enjoy it as much as I am. It's working perfectly on my Mac,

But I would still recommend ACR 8.2RC instead.
I had this same problem. I added *.adobe.com to my internet security exceptions list and then the update was found.
To be honest I also had installed bridge to try and fix this but ended up never running it so I don't know if that had an effect or not.
Thanks for the suggestion. Earlier this week I updated to ACR 8.2 (and LR 5.2) without problems.
