If it says so you aren't using a spoof. Install ofw 3.55 from recovery menu and you'll see it installs correctly.

My system information says System Software Version 3.55. How can I know if it's using a spoof?

Maybe you use a spoof for 3.60/3.66/3.70 fw. In this case you have to install ofw 3.55 from recovery mode.

I tried reinstalling OFW 3.55 (US) but i got this message: "No applicable update was found".

I am running Kmeaw 3.55 on a PS3 fat Asia. Could there be a difference between US and Asia OFW?

The way safer is this: come back to 3.55 ofw and then install it.
