When packages are deployed to the endpoints or machines, it does not install or download and stalls.
Information in the logs will look similar to the below:
Starting with ITMS 8.5 RU2 release and 8.6
Multiple package item updates WHILE the policy was downloading package with “no codebases” responses.
DownloadSoftware task is NEVER exited, despite later policy update which potentially should download the correct package version (up-to-date version from NS).
You may see from the logs that policy is stuck in the download phase, but ideally, after policy refresh the download task should be aborted and policy should resume from the moment when it requests download with the CORRECT package version.
This issue has been reported to our Symantec Development team. A pointfix will be provided for both (8.5 and 8.6) versions.
