Only downloading 40% then failure

Only downloading 40% then failure

Postby kadirh2 » 17.04.2019, 18:21

New to WSUS, looks good but have a problem, - no matter which OS option I choose, the cab download gets up to 40% and the hangs with the remaining download clock continuing to increment. Have I done something wrong?
thanks

Can you download http://download.windowsupdate.com/micro ... usscn2.cab in your browser, and does the file's signature verify ? To check the latter, right-click on the downloaded file, select Properties, tab Digital Signatures, double-click on one of them and see what it says.

OK, did you try again in WSUS Offline? Perhaps it was only a temporary issue.

If the issue persists, please try the following: Open a command prompt in the wsusoffline\client\wsus directory* and type the following command
Code: Select all
..\..\bin\wget.exe --timestamping --server-response --progress=bar:noscroll "http://download.windowsupdate.com/microsoftupdate/v6/wsusscan/wsusscn2.cab"
and see if that works. If it doesn't, please post the output here.

*) To open the command prompt: In Explorer showing the correct directory, right-click on free space and select "Open command prompt here".

Regards
Dalai

puzzling, stops downloading but clock keeps ticking. Assume this is the auto version of the download that I successfully did for you via the browser

That's indeed strange. You mean the ETA keeps increasing? That's normal when the download rate drops.

It is. See wsusoffline\static\StaticDownloadLinks-wsus.txt.

Something is resetting the connection established by wget. Do you use some kind of proxy? Do you have some internet security and/or firewall software running? What kind internet connection do you have? Is that connection reliable?

Are you using avast! (or AVG) Antivirus? I had that effect with avast!. Excluding the whole WOU directory from web scanning fixed the issue.

Hi Dalai,

Using a 4G hub through 3 mobile which works ok for streaming, other downloads etc.

Hi Boco, yes using avast. Added to exceptions but still failing at 40% mark.

For security I normally use an ordinary win 7 user account, have tried with the administrator account but the same thing happens

Well puzzled

Just to be clear: It fails at 40 MB, not 40%. Which exception list did you add the wsusoffline directory to? There are several in Avast, one for each module and a global one. Did you try disabling the Web scanner module (or whatever it's called nowadays), or all Avast modules temporarily?

Sorry, it must be added to the exclusions of the resident web shield and the file shield. The reason is that avast automatically tries to scan and disinfect archives. It detects the (not yet complete) CAB archive (most updates including the catalog are CAB archives at the inside) and tries to scan it. While scanning it locks the file and wget fails.
