To work around this issue and to reduce installation times, turn off the Check for publisher’s certificate revocation option on the server that is being upgraded.Use the following steps: When you apply an update rollup package, the update process may update the file.If you have modified the file, the file can't be updated successfully.Run an Online Update prior to the Online Migration.
When using a graphical interface, start the Ya ST Online Update or the updater applet.
