F-Secure Client Security 14.10 is not installing updates "Update check failed, error=115 (operation in progress)"


  • After updating to Server Security Premium 14.00, a group of Servers are not getting Virus Definitions
  • After upgrading to Client Security 14.10, Clients are not getting updates from Policy Manager Server


You can apply the hotfix FSCS1410-HF07 to resolve the problem.

If the problem persists, make you are experiencing the same problem, by opening the following logs from affected Client and investigate them. Logs are usually located in the following path: C:\ProgramData\F-Secure 

  • Open the C:\ProgramData\F-Secure\Log\AUA.log and scroll down to the latest event to see if you have a similar error:

2019-09-23 15:17:09.502 [0e50.1388] I: Connecting to updateserver:80/guts2 (proxy proxy.demo.com:8888)

  • Open the C:\ProgramData\F-Secure\Log\CCF\Guts2Plugin.log  and scroll down to the latest event to see if you have a similar error:

As you can see, proxy.demo.com:8888' can answer 503 without forwarding a request to the Policy Manager Server/guts2 server.
In this case, you could troubleshoot the HTTP-Proxy by checking the following:

  1. Retry the URL from the address bar again by clicking the reload/refresh button, or pressing F5 or Ctrl+R.
  2. Restart your router and/or your device, especially if you're seeing the "Service Unavailable - DNS Failure" error.
  3. As an option, you could disable the HTTP proxy for AUA, to see if the connection issue is caused by AUA. You can do this from the Policy Manager Console:
3.1  Under the F-Secure Automatic Updates Agent > HTTP  Settings > Use HTTP Proxy and set it to No. Deploy the policy.

If the changes you made now worked, make sure to enable your HTTP-Proxy to updateserver:80 (:443)

  • When upgrading from Client Security 13.xx series: GUTS2 updates were already available, so the behavior didn't change 
  • When upgrading from  Client Security 12.10-12.3x: Everything in the Client Security > Policy Manager communication was changed. If you are upgrading from 12.00 or older - also the protocol was changed from HTTP to HTTPS (but guts2 are still downloaded via HTTP).
In the event that a proxy is/must be used ensure that no filtering for port 443 is enabled.

Client Security 13.x already used GUTS2, where 503 was the "good answer", which means they would come back later, and that didn't cause fallback to the Internet.
