Lenovo Update Retriever not displaying all available updates, Bios Updates missing

I can reproduce this on 3 other computers in our domain.

 

Example- Start process to get new updates for any system, let say for this example 20JM, select system, click next, UR goes out does it's thing search/download, updates screen appears (no errors) but is missing updates like Bios firmware updates (no hidden updates exist).

 

After troubleshooting the problem found that all updates are appearing in this folder C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\UpdateRetriever\temp but not appearing in UR console. I found these errors in the Event Log under Lenovo>ThinkVantage>UpdateRetriever

 

-The software encountered an issue and was able to handle it appropriately: Error validating XML descriptor: Severity: Error Message : The 'CRC' element has an invalid value according to its data type.

 

-The software encountered an issue unexpectedly and was unable to handle the specific issue: Error loading the XML Descriptor

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not find file 'C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\UpdateRetriever\temp\n20ku10w_x64_2_.xml'.
File name: 'C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\UpdateRetriever\temp\n20ku10w_x64_2_.xml'

This problem has been plaging me for over 6 months. I have called Lenovo Phone support with no help. Please help

Re: Lenovo Update Retriever not displaying all available updates, Bios Updates missing

What version of UR are you running? You should be on version 5.00.0037.

What version of .Net framework is installed? You need 4.5.2 and above.

For the 20JM, which OS are use using in the selection for download?

 

I used 20JM, win 10, it does find the BIOS.

It is failing download for the Thunderbolt firmware update.

Make sure "show local packages " is checked.

 

Your other "failure stuff" appears to be old, junked version of downloads.  Rebuild your database anew to clear this up.

I have been able to pull all updates for that model in Win10.  As sclexman states, what version of UR are you using as well as the version of .NET framework.

Latest revision of UR is 5.0.0037.  You can download it here.  It would be best to use that, as we have seen a few errors when not on the latest version.
