It's impossible to know for sure. Either they are updating it because they haven't fully reviewed your application or they saw something (maybe good or maybe bad) that made them want to hold it. It's just a way for them to say they are actively pursuing a decision for you.
I've got a few outstanding applications, and only one is at a school that where I'd be astonished if I got in. The fact that I haven't heard much of anything from these schools, after they've had my application under review for weeks, gives me a little hope, but then I thought the same thing last year and had little luck. And of course, stupid Villanova just started reviewing my application last week. Why not just wait until 2018, guys?/snark
