Problems Installing SharePoint 2013 July 2015 and August 2015 Cumulative Updates

August 13, 2015

I had some unusual issues upgrading the SharePoint 2013 farm at a customer’s site recently.

The SharePoint 2013 July 2015 CU and SharePoint 2013 August 2015 CU have three different files available for download:

ubersrv_1.cab

ubersrv_2.cab

ubersrv2013-<KB number>-fullfile-x64-glb.exe

Normally I have downloaded the ubersrv*.exe file, installed, job done. However this time there were repeated failures trying to run the update. I got errors about the package failing to install just after the “do I need these updates” check was run.

Solution: download all three files and put them in the same folder. Run the EXE.

I’m still not 100% sure that some of the downloads I had previously were corrupt, but this worked for me!
