tell me how to configure the service. When the service starts, not all updates are downloaded from the site of apple.com.

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)

    How long are you waiting? It can take several hours (or even a day or 2) to download all of the updates from Apple, depending on your connection speed.

    Same problem here. More specifically, the log seems to indicate that a list of available updates is downloaded, but the actual updates are not downloaded. The log is chockful wit this kind of errors:

    swupd_syncd[2108] <Warning>: *** Missing version string for product 061-6809

    and

    swupd_syncd[42687] <Error>: Download for "Deprecations.plist" failed (reason: The operation couldn’t be completed. (NSURLErrorDomain error -3001.))

    and

    wupd_syncd[42687]: Download for "iMacFirmwareUpdate.smd.downloading" failed (reason: The operation couldn’t be completed. (NSURLErrorDomain error -3001.))

     

    Is it because I messed up my DNS settings? Then I'd like to restore factory defaults for the server, trading the current setup with only a few users and confused server for a clean sheet. How to do just that?

    I don't know if you've found the solution to this problem or not, but I just encountered it and appear to have solved it. The problem in my case was permissions, but according to Apple's documentation, this means that "

    [...] NSURLDownload was unable to open the downloaded file on disk." which implies that it could be permissions, not enough free space on the disk, etc.

    I have the same problem since a few days.

     

    <Error>: Download for "Deprecations.plist" failed (reason: The operation couldn’t be completed. (NSURLErrorDomain error -3001.))

     

    So SUS doesn't download new updates.

     

    Everything worked fined, nothing has been changed.

     

    I repared permissions, I have enough space on my disks.

     

    Any ideas to solve this would be great.

     

    Thanx.

    Hi Laurent,

     

    Check ownership of var/db/swupd folder (and all sub folders).

     

    They should be

    _softwareupdate:_softwareupdate

     

     

    If not (or to be sure), run this command (cd to /var/db first)...

     

     

    sudo chown -R _softwareupdate:_softwareupdate swupd

     

     

    Think this'll sort you out.

     

    Good luck.

     

    Ken
