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.

    Already two months. I have two servers 10.6 and 10.7. On the server service is running 10.6 seems to be OK, but only 10.7 of the pumped updates. At the same stroiki servers. And for some reason, there is no fileindex-leopard-snowleopard-lion.sucatalog.

    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


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


    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.

    Hi Laurent,


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


    They should be




    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.
