We're running Lion Server 10.7.2. This server is used as a Software Update server for our LAN. Since upgrading to Lion, it has not served up any Lion updates to our clients. For example, right now 10.7.2 is the latest version, all of our local clients are at 10.7, and they have not been offered the 10.7.2 update.

 

In looking in the list of updates that the server has downloaded, I do not see 10.7.2.

 

I have already followed the tips in this support document: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3867

 

That made no difference.

 

When I tell software update to refresh it's available software, this is what is recorded in the Software Update Service Log:

    I'm having the same exact problem but I am still on SL Server. Updates are downloaded but not being served to clients.

    This article seems to address the issue.

    I updated SL server plist and I'm in the process of updating the Lion client.

     

    Seems stupid that you have to change something on the Lion client.

    I was in this situation, I nuked everything, the problem went away.  More updates, the problem returned. "Missing version string"  I think the Lion swupd_sync is messing up the catalogs when it merges them.  I've just blown away the catalogs and resynced and the problem is gone.  I've also turned off remove outdated updates as I suspect that's the cause.  Will update if it goes again.  Oddly I still don't get the Macbook Air 2010 Lion EFI update which is really what I want to come.  Perhaps I just need to update my Air again now that it isn't erroring.
