Yes...not only that, at least some of the patches are *OLD*, much
older than you'd expect.  The kit came with 1 OS patch disk and
3 "Application" patch disks (10.01/10.10, 10.20, and 11.00).  
IIRC, the two patches I looked at on the OS patch disk were 
about a year out of date (PDCINFO and ?).

The site mentioned above seems aimed at people on support contracts,
although I'm not sure about that.

I ordered my 10.20 upgrade via:
http://www.software.hp.com/y2kupgrades/swp_upgrades.html

And, you can do it online.
