When I try to open FTM 2012, I get a message telling me there is a required update needed. However, the update does not load, rendering FTM unusable/unopenable.

Unfortunately you don't say from which version of FTM 2012 that you are trying to update from.

Further, Ancestry.com does not appear to have provided a link to download the update outside FTM

I think I would uninstall FTM re install it from your CD then apply the update

The current version is build.723

I hope you gave FTM more time. It should be running by now.

I have had it take from 10 to 15 minutes for it do its thing to the database. There is no signal (ie twirling hourglass or other visual) to tell you it is working, but it is.

If you are on a PC and you open your Task Manager you can tell if FTM is working. I try to keep my Task Manager open whenever I am using FTM 2012, to see such things as is the system responding, and how much memory is it using, and how long does it take to stop working/running after I exit it
