Issue/Introduction

Hello,

Since CSM is going out of support next year I'm testing the process of installation and maintenance of software through z/OSMF. So I've installed Sysview Essentials using z/OSMF, I completed the "Acquire a z/OSMF Portable Software Instance" and "Install Product Software Using z/OSMF Deployments", now I'm trying with the instructions on "Maintain Products Using z/OSMF Software Update" but I'm getting the following on z/OSMF: 


No updates were found to satisfy the selection criteria for recommended updates.

 

Environment

Release : 6.0

Resolution

I recreated this:

No updates were found to satisfy the selection criteria for recommended updates.

Software Update uses vendor defined source IDs to identify recommended updates. If the vendor of the software products installed in the selected software instance does not define a source ID to identify recommended updates, refer to the vendor to learn how to identify which updates should be installed.

What this means is that you do not have any PTF's received in your CSI to satisfy any of the source ids.

After receiving all available PTF's in CSM for my test CSI I retried it and it worked in z/OSMF:

Recommended updates have been found and are ready to be installed. Click "Next" to install the updates.
