This kind of question should really be asked on http://forum.legato.io

Short answer is:
*swiflash* is a standalone tool, used principally for recovery purpose, requiring an USB connection (works even if the device is bricked, or without IP connection)
*fwupdate* is part of the Legato Framework host tools (you need to have Legato Framework installed on your host). It downloads over SSH (requiring an IP connection, and a device that is up and already running Legato).
