OSX update URL returns nothing

See original GitHub issue

According to the docs this is the URL I should be calling for checking available updates:

Although as you can see there is no response at all. Shouldn’t I be receiving a JSON or something?

I have uploaded the 1.0.0 version to the release server and have tried with different versions to see the behaviour and still get nothing.

Is this the correct URL?

The docs are confusing since first they suggest to use update/osx/:version and then the example given is 'update/'+platform+'/'+version and platform is: var platform = os.platform() + '_' + os.arch();.

So what you are suggesting is that I upload an extra .zip file besides the .dmg file for the 1.0.0 release?

Yes, the .dmg and .exe are only used for initial installation, you must upload .zip and .nupkg for updating. The .zip and .nupkg should already be a product of electron-builder.
