Using SSL would ensure the authenticity of the server. To ensure the integrity of update files, they are signed so any attempt for MitM attack would fail as the updater would refuse fake/hacked update files.

OK, so you're saying the server authenticity isn't ensured, because it's not using SSL ?

 

And how are the update files signed - what kind of signing ?

 

The point is that ESET would not accept unsigned or modified update files. It's not important whether they are downloaded from a mirror or from ESET's servers, however, those who want may provide mirror via https as it's fully supported by the updater.
