Take a close look at your XML: there is no @lastUpdate. Only a lastUpdate.

To get sorts right, I often employ a very simple and handy trick: use xsl:copy-of with the exact statement as in the xsl:sort, on the same location (just under the sort) in the XSLT. That way, it is easy enough to see that you select nothingness.
