In my experience I have never seen any Nas that keeps on trying as this
concludes that it will keep trying even bypassing next interim update too..

If the guy who posted question wants to do this it's very much possible. (
Atleast you should try don't loose hope ) I have given the idea of how this
can be achieved if need working configuration I can provide you
