Import of Autopatch Packages randomly fail when doing the import via Univiewer Console.
The issue is not systematic, it can be reproduced sometimes only once, and then when retrying it works correctly.
If the communication is not very good between Univiewer Console and UVMS ( like when using VPN and UVC WebConsole), it occurs more frequently.

The following error can be found in the UVMS logfile when the problem occurs:
|ERROR| request-worker-XX | com.orsyp.central.server.DispatchHandler | Handle creation error com.orsyp.comm.ProtocolException: UniverseProtocol - decode: invalid header [1000 ]
at com.orsyp.comm.server.KmeleonProtocolServer.decodeSize(



A problem was present in the Package import mechanism of UVMS.
