Updates download to file or update and restart

Why do updates of IntelliJ IDEA sometimes allow me to update and restart, but other times send me to a webpage to download the update file? Why can't all updates just allow me to click a button to update and restart?

Sometimes patch isn't available for your build and update channel, e.g.
updating from IntelliJ IDEA 13 RC3 via patch isn't possible.
