That is normal/expected. The update will only be proposed once it is
released as stable.

So far  there never have been updates to RC versions, only to stable versions.

So when 4.4.3 rc2 (aka, i.e. different from your =
rc1 build, is released as final, then it will suggest an update.

The plan is to make the online-check offer the update one or two days
after the announcement, at least for the early versions (.0, .1 & .2)

So check whether update-check does work can only be performed after
final release is out, not while it is still in rc phase.
