  • @Maynard,
    pueden ser varias cosas.
    Directo de la ayuda del FAQ de MBSA:

     Q: Why am I seeing error "Failed to download security update databases" followed by "The catalog file is damaged or an invalid catalog"?

    When downloading the Microsoft Update offline catalog ( before each attempt to scan, downloaded files are checked for a valid Microsoft digital signature before being used. When the file is missing, or the digital signature cannot be verified, these errors may occur.

    To avoid this error message, it is recommended that the update (see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 835732) be installed on all Windows 2000 computers running MBSA to perform scanning.

    This error may also appear if you use a proxy server such as Microsoft ISA 2000 Server if it does not include a policy that permits anonymous access to the Microsoft Update site. A resolution for this is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 885819.

    Another cause for this issue may be that Internet Explorer is set to offline mode (Work Offline). MBSA requires either IE to be in online mode and be able to successfully pass through any proxy servers to obtain the file, or you may need to use the steps to obtain the necessary catalog and authentication files as detailed elsewhere in this FAQ for using the file in offline or secure modes when Internet connectivity isn’t available.

    Also be sure to confirm both the scanning and target machines have the latest versions of the WUA client, which can also be obtained at the following locations:

    • For x86-based computers (WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe) or
    • For x64-based computers (WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe) or
    • For ia64-based computers (WindowsUpdateAgent30-ia64.exe), the latest versions are available by examining the contents of the file located at

    Saludos, Christian.-
