Error: Failed to configure approval state to install for update

Overview

When trying to approve metadata-only packages for deployment, Patch Manager fails with the error:

 

"Failed to configure  approval state to Install for update"..."Can not create and install deployment to an update that does not support installThe transaction ended in the trigger."

Environment

All Patch Manager versions

Cause 

This is the normal behavior for metadata-only packages. Metadata-only packages do not have content, which causes installation issues.

Resolution

  1. Download the content of the package from the third-party website.
  2. Publish the third-party package using the package itself, not the metadata-only package. Refer to Publishing Custom Software Packages for more information.
