SM7.2 Java stack update,sum tool only show xml stack file option


I installed a new SM7.2 system, the ABAP stack has updated to SP03, for solman_setup, in 'system preparation' scenario, step 4.3 Implement Java Patches, the help text is as below:


1.To find the list of software components to be patched, open SAP Note 1595736, and the open the Release Information Note (RIN) that corresponds to your support package.

2.Open and choose Support Packages and Patches -> Browse Download Catalog -> SAP Technology Components -> SAP Solution Manager -> SAP Solution Manager 7.2 -> Solution Manager Java Stack. Download the relevant patches.

3.If you need to deploy software component SOLMANDIAG (LM-SERVICE), switch on maintenance mode, as described in the support package specific RIN (refer to 1.).

4.After the download of the Java component patches, place the files in a directory prepared to implement them. For more information, see the SUM guide at -> Software Logistics Toolset 1.0 -> Documentation -> System Maintenance -> Updating SAP Systems Using Software Update Manager <Version> -> Applying Single Component Updates and Patches Using a Manually Prepared Directory.

I have downloaded all the patches need for the java stack and put into a folder, and I using the latest SUM tool(1.0 SP17 PL8) to update it. But when it hit the 'SELECT ROADMAP' phase, I only have option specify the stack xml file, there is no option 'manual prepared directory', any idea why the option was missing? thanks.
