Error adding Custom Patch

Error adding Custom Patch

Postby headgeek » 01.07.2016, 18:29

I am new to WSUSOffline. I have the basic setup working and can offline patch a W7x86 system and it works well but there are some patches which are still missing. Most of them are .Net 4 patches. So I read in the documentation that you can add custom patches. One of the patches which is missing is KB2979575 so I got the URL and placed it in
..\static\custom\StaticDownloadLinks-w61-86-glb.txt

The url that I put there is
https://download.microsoft.com/download/2/F/7/2F798ACF-EFDC-45EA-B76F-F0DE4E67882E/NDP40-KB2979575-v2-x86.exe

I verfied that the URL is correct by just pasting it in a browser and it began to download the correct file. I next ran Update Generator and I get the error

Code: Select all
Fri 07/01/2016 11:03:47.16 - Warning: Download of https://download.microsoft.com/download/2/F/7/2F798ACF-EFDC-45EA-B76F-F0DE4E67882E/NDP40-KB2979575-v2-x86.exe failed

but no indication of why. Anyone have any ideas and what I can do to correct this?

WSOSOU uses wget as download software tool. Unfortunately, wget can not process HTTPS links (those starting with https://), yet.

Solution: Use the HTTP link.

boco, are you the maintainer for WSUSofflineupdater?

I've just run into the same problem and it took me some time to find this reply. You may want to add this to the FAQ or use
Code: Select all
wget --no-check-certificate
which bypasses the HTTPS certificate check. Of course a proper fix would be adding the necessary CAs to wget's trust store (it does support HTTPS downloads, but will fail when no proper trust chain is found).

Nope, but I'm reasonably sure that the dev will appear and comment on it.

As long as the http:// links are still available, using HTTPS without any certificate check does not offer any additional benefits. Once MS starts using HTTPS, exclusively, we'll have to adapt.
