Normally, the firewalls should transfer the uploaded image from the master to the slave firewall. Make sure you plan for a short downtime, as both devices seem to do the update simultaneously instead after each other (thereby using the HA they are configured for).

Here's a link to one of Fortinet's docs: update_ha-firmware.html

In essence, on the status page, click on "Update" in the Firmware Version line of the status widget. You can then either select using the FortiGuard network to download it directly from the servers to the fortigate, or you can use a local upload through the browser. This requires you do download the firmware image from the server first (go through support.fortinet.com using your login/pw).
