Can anyone point me to the location in the code where WordPress gets the core update url (eg: https://downloads.wordpress.org/release/en_AU/wordpress-4.8.2.zip)?


It comes from the wordpress.org API version checker endpoint (limited documentation here) and is retrieved in the wp_version_check() function.
