Hmm. See what happens if you type this instead:

    gem update fxruby --platform x86-mingw32

As of FXRuby 1.6.20 I started building the Windows gems using the
MinGW-based Ruby installer. Even though those are compatible with the
"old" Ruby installer for Windows (which is what you're running), the
platform is different ("i386-mswin32" versus "i386-mingw32") and that
may be why RubyGems doesn't think it's a match...
