Error: Failed to configure approval state to install for update


When you try to approve metadata-only packages for deployment, Patch Manager fails and displays the following errors:

Failed to configure  approval state to Install for update"...

Cannot create and install deployment to an update that does not support install. The transaction ended in the trigger.


All Patch Manager versions


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


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