SCUP - fails importing of updates

    Question

  • I'm not sure if it is related or not but after updating to Current Branch (1511) I can no longer download/import adobe updates into SCUP (ver. 5.0). I receive the error below. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    Import:Exception: The type initializer for 'ExtentPlaceholderCreator' threw an exception.

  • Figured it out. SP3 for SQL 2012 was the culprit. I tried to re-run that update but it didn't fix it. I then uninstalled the SP3 update and now everything works like it should.

  • Can you please provide some more lines from SCUP log? A single line from a (unknown) logfile does not help at all. Plus SCUP/WSUS are not related to ConfigMgr in first place.

  • I understand that they aren't related but just seems odd that they worked fine before the upgrade. That line came from SCUP.log. Below is the rest of the log.

  • I've got the same message and I haven't changed anything about my infrastructure. Can't import any new updates.

  • This is aggravating because I can't push Adobe updates now.

  • Update: I installed another round of updates and everything started working again. Not sure which up date may have done it, I'll have to look at them to see.

  • I ran Updates as well. There were 12 of them but unfortunately none of them fixed my issue.

  • I, too, have this issue now all of a sudden... Went to do Adobe updates and getting this error for no reason... Seems it's linked to an update possibly that broke something? Typical.

    I have SCCM 2012 R2 SP1, not the new 1511 build - running on server 2008 R2, SQL 2008. So, I can't uninstall any SP3 of SQL 2012, but I'm still getting this problem. Anyone else see this or fix this?
