Der Updatemanager verabschiedet sich mit der Fehlermeldung: Remediation failed for …. Failed to install following patches.
Via BackupLog und Eventlog (EventID: 8197 Source: ShavlikPatchMgmt) wird auf ein nichtsigniertes Packer aufmerksam gemacht. Dies kann z.B durch einen fehlerhaften Download auftreten.

Workaround:
Entsprechender Hotfix im lokalen Patchinventory (auf dem Virtualserver) löschen und ein neues Remediate starten. Danach hoffen, dass der Patch richtig heruntergeladen wird.

Remediation Might Fail with File Is Not Signed Message in the Windows Event Viewer Log of the Virtual Machine
When a Windows patch file is downloaded incorrectly (for example, due to network problems, the incomplete file is downloaded), the signature verification of the patch file during the remediation fails along with the remediation. An application event is logged and shown in the Windows Event Viewer as File is not signed, followed by the file path.
Workaround: To re-download the missing patch file, delete the file by following the path shown in the Event Viewer log, and start another remediation process.
