CU 2013 failed for SharePoint 2010 & 2013. “The Installation Package failed”

We are installing the August CU to our SharePoint 2010 & 2013 farms, on first server it was sucessfully completed and then we copied the extracted exe file to other servers and run it. Opps!

We encountered this error “The Installation Package failed”

After couple of hour’s investigation we found one thing in the OPatchInstall log file.  You can check the log file (opatchinstall(1).log) at this location “C:\Users\Account under which you installing\AppData\Local\Temp\2”.  In the log file you will see this error:

OPatchInstall: Getting the data from the file ‘D:\temp\UBERSRV_1.CAB’
OPatchInstall: Thrown CDetectionExceptionWin32(2

Since April CU 2013(for both SharePoint 2010 & 2013) Microsoft includes two files in compressed package. One file is “” and 2nd is exe file i.e “ubersrv2013-kb2817414-fullfile-x64-glb.exe”.

When you install the CU make sure both files in the same folder to install it sucessfully other if cab file location is different than exe, it will fail.

This statement true for April CU 2013, June CU 2013 and August CU 2013 for SharePoint 2010 & 2013.
