The PDF I get is for the original Jelly Bean update. Are you getting something different?

Just like last time, the link still goes to the PDF for the prior update and probably will continue to do so until a few days after the new update begins to get pushed.  Apparently, Verizon posts the new PDF last.

But several sources are indicating a new update:

It makes no difference now... Vzw has long expended what little good will I had left for them...  Its great if its true, but klp is just three months away... Which means we wont get it until next november if at all!  There is just no way it should be taking this long.

Sprint had 4.2.1 a month ago, and all this means is we will always be last in line wrt other nexus phones (in particular Sprints Gnex).

Others have said there's a big diff between the sprint and vzw gnex... But there are lots of articles out there that unequivocally state the ONLY diff is the frequency that the LTE radio receives.  If that's the case, then the additional delay in update releases that vzw subjects us to is totally unreasonable and unacceptable, and is indicative of a callous disregard of the paying customer.  We were SOLD on the Nexus... What we got was second class service from a company with a second rate leadership.  I suppose I should be grateful I don't own a thunderbolt or a bionic, or some other crummy, skinned and bloated phone... But I feel they suckered us with their "pure Google" and "fast updates" hype... I would not have this device otherwise.

Sorry, but that's simply how I feel we've been treated.

article at Droid-Life.com About the "ALLEGED" update:

Also, Samsung has nothing to do with any updates to the Galaxy Nexus, Only Google and Verizon have anything to do with updating the Nexus, don't know why Verizon reps think Samsung has something to do with it.

That link was already posted by the OP in this discussion.

What's your source klp will be released this year? Honestly it all comes down to for the GN is if Verizon keeps it updated like the rest of the Nexus's ill be a happy customer and stay on Verizon and if not and they do all they can to kill the LTE GN because they think its End of Life..Then I leave Verizon. Simple as that I cant imagine Verizon will ever get another Nexus.

In any event... Its unreasonable and inexcusable that updates for a nexus device should take THIS long.
