Worth trying this variation as well - you might get better performance without the NOT IN/subquery:

UPDATE [import-CSM2] LEFT JOIN tblLetterOfCredit 
ON [import-CSM2].[Reference Number] = tblLetterOfCredit.LCNo 
AND [import-CSM2].[LCID] = [tblLetterOfCredit].[LCID] 
SET [import-CSM2].LCID = [tblLetterOfCredit].[LetterOfCreditID]
WHERE  [import-CSM2].[Actual Status])<>"GEC" AND  [tblLetterOfCredit].[LCID] IS NULL
