This is probably due to http://firefly.activestate.com/shanec/activepython/ticket/11 where the MSI product code for 64-bit installer was changed to be different from the 32-bit one. Specifically the product codes used are:
>=184.108.40.206 32-bit: "a2e24bd9-085b-410f-aad0-5eb5fa5d73d2",
>=220.127.116.11 64-bit: "64e24bd9-085b-410f-aad0-5eb5fa5d73d2",
Consequently 64-bit installers for 2.X will have different MSI product code from 18.104.22.168 onwards.
Was your "update" issue happening only with the 64-bit installer of 22.214.171.124?
