Maybe because the existing method typically requires a network - either to download the tar directly from the internet to the .update folder, to copy the tar over the network to Samba Update folder, or connecting via a network with ssh to copy the tar file from an attached drive to the .update folder.

A "GUI" method could be useful on devices that aren't connected to a network (Kodi is used in a lot of embedded and not necessarily networked installations). Or where the box is administered by users that don't want to mess around with Samba/ssh etc. For example, send a flash drive containing the tar file to your parents, along with a note "Follow these 6 easy steps to upgrade...1) Insert flash drive in telly box 2) Go to menu item System -> OpenELEC 3) Click on "Upgrade from Drive" (or whatever) 4) Click on xyz drive 5) Click on upgrade.tar 6) Click Yes to proceed". Etc.
