After several hours and several attempts I've finally managed to
download the updated installer but the there is definitively a
distribution issue of (at least) the "Java for OS X 2013-004" download
web page across Apple's CDN servers.

The updated installer SHA1 digest is:
e9a1954c8d77666380526e5107825c2ffeaf314a
That's different from what I still see on the download page most of the
times I load it in the browser. Usually (but not always) the page that
comes down contains the old SHA1 digest, that is:
153c3f74d5285d10008fce2004d904da8d2ffdff

Even curl confirms it:

% curl --silent 'http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572' | grep SHA1
<p style="margin-left: 0px; margin-top: 0px; font-family: 'Lucida
Grande'; font-size: 11px; "><span style="font-size: 11px;
">&nbsp;SHA1=</span><span style="font-size: 11px; font-family:
Helvetica; ">&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: Helvetica;
">153c3f74d5285d10008fce2004d904da8d2ffdff</span></p>

% curl --silent 'http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572' | grep SHA1
<p style="margin-left: 0px; margin-top: 0px; font-family: 'Lucida
Grande'; font-size: 11px; "><span style="font-size: 11px;
">&nbsp;SHA1=</span><span style="font-size: 11px; font-family:
Helvetica; ">&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: Helvetica;
">e9a1954c8d77666380526e5107825c2ffeaf314a</span></p>

% curl --silent 'http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572' | grep SHA1
<p style="margin-left: 0px; margin-top: 0px; font-family: 'Lucida
Grande'; font-size: 11px; "><span style="font-size: 11px;
">&nbsp;SHA1=</span><span style="font-size: 11px; font-family:
Helvetica; ">&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: Helvetica;
">153c3f74d5285d10008fce2004d904da8d2ffdff</span></p>

Note that this isn't the first time it happens:
<http://lists.apple.com/archives/java-dev/2013/Feb/msg00056.html>
When I click the Download link sometimes I even got the Apple Support
HTTP 404 error message ("We're sorry…").

I've also noticed that all the old installer files I got has been
effectively downloaded from this URL[1] but the right one has been
downloaded from this other URL[2].
So, if you are still served with the old download page and download
link, a direct download of [2] should do the trick.
