This use to work fine but now it doesnt. I am running a THINKPAD-X1-CARBON-6TH-GEN-TYPE-20KH-20KG. The sticker says 20KH-002JUS.

Preferred Solution: X1 Gen 6 lenovo update The package catalog for your system is currently being updated on the System

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What is happening with Lenovo System Update? We are getting an error that the package catalog is being updated? We have several models here and its happening on all of them. I can't find anything relating to this update on any Lenovo site, and the response I got from calling support was "Sorry." They were also not able to tell me when they think this will be fixed. EDIT: Spelling.

I have regualrly run a System Update for my computer via Lenovo Companion and I've managed to have all updates successfully completed - all except for one. Lately, I have runs of Updates where I encounter an update for Synaptic UltraNav Driver, run it, but comes up as being unable to download and install - in spite of a successful initial download. Since its encounter a couple of weeks ago, I have been unsuccessful in fully downloading and installing this specific Driver for my computer. Is there any indication of issues for this Drive? And what should I do to resolve it? Also, if the Driver can't be properly updated, what is its purpose for my system? Any form of help concerning this Driver update issue would be appreciated.

I am running windows XP Pro and work with multi media applications, during playback of these files or sometimes in windows media player (and at times for know reason at all) my system will just shut down - no warning at all. The applications are not particulary using up much memory in which case I have more than enough to support. Upon starting up again this is the error message that is showing up in the event viewer (Application)

3 inconsistencies were detected in property store during recovery of c:\system volume information\catalog.wci .

In the ErrrorContent index on c:\system volume information\catalog.wci is corrupt. Please shutdown and restart the Indexing Service (cisvc). It also states after that -

Ci Cleaning up corrupt content index metadata on C:\system volume information\catalog.wci. Index will be automatically restored by refiltering all documents. This sounds like it should help to clear the problem however, tis not the case.

This has been happening off and on for a while now could someone please help me as I would dearly like to get back to business without being shut down half way through and without losing work!
I have gone through the virus, spybot, adware sequence to ensure that it is not related, and seem to be fine from that point of view at least.
Thank you in advance

A:System shutting down - system volume catalog error

I am having the exact same issue and am running XP Server. It has been shutting down every night on it own and has several errors that I think may be the culprit. I get the exact indexing error as you do and also: The Security System could not establish a secured connection withthe server NDS/prisoner.iana.org. No authentication protocol was available. We have had this system running since January, but this just becoming an issue.

We have Symantec Antivirus that the Server pushes out to other PC's but not a firewall, except for our Router.

Any ideas.

Please assist. I have a 64 bit windows 7 home premuim and it is set to auto update. I noted the last updates dont what to install and checked the log.

The last successful (64 bit) update KB890830 ?Malicious software removal tool x 64? was on 16/8/2012. The next update was ?security update KB2589322 for 32 bit system. It was successful !! and so was a couple other following 32 bit updates. But then the next 64 bit updates failed. See attached.
And now my system cannot install updates. How can a 32 bit patch be automatically updating a 64 bit system? And how do I fix it? Please help.

A:32 bit update KB2589322 automatic updated on 64 bit system

Looks like that update is for Office and the 32 bit version. If you did not install the 64 bit version, the update is correct.

If you want to check, right click the white flag and open Windows Update. On bottom left, select Installed Updates and check the Office section.

 Is it still possible to create a system recovery  if I have updated system  from original Win 7 to Win 8.1 and finally to win 10. If a factory recovery is possible does it reset to win 10 or does it go back to original windows setup that came from the factory as win 7.
As a separate issue, after updating system to win 10 I had a problem one day in that windows would not come up. At that time I thought I would do a system recovery but instead apparently I did a full recovery. .Fortunately after I originally updated to win 10 I did run a system back up on win 10 that I still have stored on a separate hard drive. As it stands I have win 10 running but without any of my  previously installed programs. My question is this, is still possible to recover win 10 that I have backed up on a separate hard drive that would include all my programs etc
I hope I have not confused everybody with my explanation. I am only a novice at computers but have found out that I learn a great deal when trying to get out of a jam such as this.
Any help is appreciated,

Hello, In our organization we have a VPN client that is sensative to driver versions.  We have noticed Lenovo System Update is only updating the Lenovo T470 Wireless-AC 8265 drivers to a certain point and has stopped.  That we could tell there did seem to be a problem as previously there was a rapid succession of updates for our T470's and the wireless NICs to a certain point.T470 - 20HES09L00 Would it be possible to have this driver updated? 2018/09/03 - v20.70.3.3 - Lenovo2019/03/06 - v20.120.1.1 - Intel  Thank you,Tony H. 

A:Lenovo T470 - Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 - Lenovo System Update - Wireless AC Driver Update

I noticed this apparent divergence on my T480, so I manually installed thev20.120.1.1 driver direct from the  Intel site. When it got done installing, Device manager (Windows 10 Pro 64-bit) reported that I STILL was using the same version as offered by Lenovo:  v20.70.3.3 - Lenovo

When I bought my Lenovo V330-15IKB laptop slightly less than a year ago, I used the System Update in Lenovo Vantage, and it showed the update history, including BIOS updates. For some reason, now when I check 'My device status', in the System Update section, there is a red cross instead of green check like the other lines, and the message 'System Update not found'. What is causing this, and how can it be fixed?

There is a particular piece of freeware/shareware out there that will scan your system and catalog exactly what software/hardware is installed. I can not remember the name of it. I am thinking of a particular program, but any will do.

Hi, there!
I was referred to this forum because of the following:
A little while ago, when I was troubleshooting some problems with one of my PCs, I had to delete System .wci catalog. As it turned out (after I figured it out what was causing the problem), the deletion of that catalog was not necessary. Now, I have already
recreated the catalog by looking at my other PCs.  
And the following are directories for the same System .wci catalog that I am trying to exclude:
C:\Documents and Settings\*\Application Data\*
C:\Documents and Settings\*\Local Settings\*

I know a star * means 'all'.
Then, first * in the first directory means what - 'All Users'?
Then, what is the second *? Does it mean I need to simply highlight the whole Application Data directory?
And what do *'s mean in C:\Documents and Settings\*\Local Settings\*  ?
Are they supposed to mean my First_Name Last_Name (if I am the only one user)? Because Local Settings directory is only under my First_Name Last_Name. And then again, what is the meaning of the next *, and where is it?
I hope someone clarifies these questions for me.
Thanks in advance.

Hi @jsim,
Lenovo Vantage will check for updates including the BIOS update. In some cases that the BIOS is not updated and the Lenovo Vantage did not capture the update, then you may download the BIOS from our Lenovo Support Website. 
Upon checking, the updated BIOS version is AUCN54WW.
Let us know if you need additional information.

Hello! I'm a bit new to GPOs and working on the server so please forgive misleading terms if I mention something that's not quite correct, but I'm trying to configure Lenovo System Update to run automatically in the background, with very little user input. We want the laptops to just grab updates directly from Lenovo so they get the latest and greatest. So when I move the ADM to the directory, this error pops up. I've been doing some research online before posting this query, but I haven't found anything that I understand that points me at a possible solution. If any of you out there in Lenovo Forum land know what I might do to fix this, I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

I upgraded to Windows 10 on my ThinkPad Twist. After that, I ran Lenovo's System Update and downloaded and installed all the recommended updates. Now when I reboot I get a message saying that C:\Program Files (X86)\Thinkpad\Utilities\PWMTR64V.dll is missing. Searching the Lenovo support site for this DLL file name shows that it is related to Windows 7 Power Management. However, one of the updates from Lenovo was Power Management for Windows 10. I am hesitant to install the Power Management update for Windows 7 (which I'm guessing will solve my missing DLL problem, but maybe not) after installing such an update specific to Windows 10. But I don't want to have to have that popup message about a missing DLL every time I boot. Anyone know how I can resolved this?

A:Missing DLL after Lenovo System Update

I have a T540p (x64) and am also getting the PWMTR64V.dll that started fairly recently. It's also been updated to Windows 10 (last year), and like you, given the fix apparently relates to a Windows 7 process, I'm reluctant to update/install it. I went to the pages suggested by the original solution, but both throw 404s. Not real sure where to go with this either, and on the assumption it's a bogus error for this OS/machine, I'd just as soon like to have it stop prompting if possible. elaine

I have had my Dell 8700 for little over a year and have had problems from the beginning.  I am 72 years old, and I am at my wits end!!!

A hard drive was replaced in the summer of 2015, but I have still had problems with the computer shutting down and my having to refresh it to factory setting.

I thought updating to Windows 10 would solve some problems, and I did this in October, 2015.  Everything was fine until a couple of months ago.  The end result was when I tried to refresh the computer to factory defaults, it went back to 8.0 or 8.1, and I evidently lost something in the process.
Now, I cannot update to Windows 10 and when I tried to resinstall the Dell Operating System, I get for both:  "WE COULDN'T UPDATE THE SYSTEM RESERVED PARTITION."
I DO HAVE A SYSTEM BACKUP ON 20 CDS (MADE WHEN I HAD WINDOWS 10).  Could I reinstall the system with these backupdisks?  How do I do that?  I also have a Dell 2 Boot USP stick, I have a recovery stick, too, but it semed that when I used this, I received a message that not all files were recovered
What should I do at this point? 

A:Error message when trying to update to Windows 10 or to reinstall operating system 8.1: We couldn't update the system reserved partition."

On MBR disk, Windows 10 requires a 500MB system reserved partition, while 100MB in Windows 7, so you can try to extend system reserved partition.
In disk management, you can only extend partition using the unallocated space next to its right side. so even if you shrink D: drive, the option to extend the efi partition is still grayed out. My suggestion is to use a third party software, AOMEI Partition Assistant, both the standard (free) or the Professional(paid) version can extend partition as long as there is unallocated space on that hard drive. to see more information read:

Lenovo Security Advisory: LEN-2015-011
Potential Impact: Execution of arbitrary code
Severity: Medium

Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified within Lenovo System Update (previously known as ThinkVantage System Update). Lenovo has released a new version of the Lenovo System Update software that addresses these vulnerabilities.

Lenovo System Update validates all system update files as they are downloaded from the Lenovo servers. However, if the local system contains malware, it is possible that the downloaded updates could be altered before installation creating a race condition. The latest Lenovo System Update release eliminates this possibility. Lenovo System Update uses a service called SUService.exe to run system updates. As part of the authentication and validation process the service only accepts commands if a valid security token is passed along with the command. Vulnerabilities were discovered on how the security tokens were generated allowing an attacker to run commands. The latest Lenovo System Update release fixes the token authentication flaws.
Other security issues were also addressed in this update.
Mitigation Strategy for Customers (what you should do to protect yourself):
Starting from April 1, 2015, run Lenovo System Update and install the latest version of the application, version 5.06.0034 or later. You can determine the currently installed version by opening Lenovo System Update, clicking on the green question mark in the ... Read more

Lenovo Vantage has a selecton for system update and I have been using that. Today, out of the blue, a stand-alone application called "Lenovo System Update" was installed. Why? What does it get me that I don't already have as part of Lenovo Vantage?What happens if I uninstall it?There is one update that it says can't be installed: Intel Graphics Driver. I am offerd the option of installing it manually. I am reluctant to do that: If Lenovo Update can't install it, how can I do better?The Lenovo Vantage update process also will not install it but does not give me the manual option.ASSIDE: The interface is confusing. Selecting "Next" does not do an install. I have to first select "download." If that's the next step, why doesn't "next" get me there? ASSIDE #2: The above has a numbered list but after I post that formatting is gone. When re-editing it shows as a numbered list (good) but after posting it does not (bad).
