Premature upgrade email?

I'm US Silver, and yesterday I got a "Your First Class upgrade status" email for a flight 8 days into the future (booked a few weeks ago).

It says "No upgrades available on your flight(s)" and lists the first two legs. In the details, for each leg, it says "Too early for upgrade".

Why on earth am I getting this 8 days out, when the Silver upgrade window is just 2 days? Just an IT glitch?

This was booked on, and these first two legs are on US metal. There's a 3rd leg on AA which I know isn't US-upgradable; my Silver will have expired by then anyway.

Also, when I search now for DFW-CLT 3/27, selecting the search option for preferred upgrades, only 6 of the 8 US-operated nonstops have the upgrade available indicator icon. The other two don't, even though they have F seats still for sale. Why would that be? Shouldn't all US operated domestic flights with F cabins and F seats for sale be upgradable?
