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 <Warning>: *** Missing version string for product 061-6809
swupd_syncd <Error>: Download for "Deprecations.plist" failed (reason: The operation couldn’t be completed. (NSURLErrorDomain error -3001.))
wupd_syncd: 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 "
[...] NSURLDownloadwas 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.
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.
