Re: Updatemanager broken during update -SOLVED

I got the same error but I followed the instructions to correct, just letting anyone concerned it might still be an issue.

This was between 11:30 and 11:45 CST, sorry I did not check the exact time or record the error unless there is a log I can get it from.

Thanks
