Because updatepw is no legal slapd.conf directive.
If you have the entry that is referenced by the updatedn directive in your 
directory, it has all its credentials there (userPassword; 
userCertificate, ...).

The updatedn directive is only necessary to tell the slave what the update-DN 
is. On the other hand roodn (and rootpw) are neded to create a directory from 
nothing (= LDIF file ;-).

Hope it helps
