Unable to push software updates to the SCCM software update group

Updated April 19, 2018


You set up your Patch Manager in an SCCM deployment by:

  • Installing SCCM
  • Installing Patch Manager
  • Configuring the SCCM server with WSUS
  • Verifying that the deployment mechanism is using SCCM Software Update Groups instead of WSUS groups
  • Publishing third-party packages from Patch Manager to the SCCM server
  • Verifying that you can view the packages in Software Updates.

After performing these tasks, you cannot push the software updates to the SCCM Software update group. When this issue occurs, the following error displays:

Failed to download content id xxxxxxx. Error: There was an error downloading 
the software update (404).


SCCM Third Party Package Download Error-1.jpg


  • Patch Manager 2.1.5
  • Microsoft® System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 1702


  • SCCM is configured with the wrong content location for the third party updates


  1. Ensure that the content location is correct.
  2. Ensure that the SCCM account has permissions to access the content on the Content location folder.
