Hello,

We are updating device to 11.2.2. By now, about 10% of updates has failed.

Most of devices have version 11.2.0. Some devices has Monthly Update installed and a very few version 11.1.

We have severals errors :

"One or more pre-requisite updates failed to install to this device. Ensure all pre-requisite updates have been applied successfully and try again."

"There was an error while installing package setup.exe. MSI return code: 1601. Check the system-update.log on the device for details. "

"The MSI engine is in use. Make sure all installing updates are complete before deploying additional updates."




As a example, here is a partial log for "There was an error while installing package setup.exe." error :
