Using the built-in "Appliance Updates Settings" from our UAG 20.09 results in an error in the log-file:
07/09 13:24:30,623 Applying any package updates available
Package update with url + https://packages.vmware.com/uag/20.09/updates.json + failed as server returned errorcode - 404
And it's true: if you try to curl https://packages.vmware.com/uag/20.09/updates.json ... the file does not exists.
I use the default update-URLs:
OS Updates: https://packages.vmware.com/photon
Appliance Updates: https://packages.vmware.com/uag
Are there any other update-URLs?
I would like to use it too - but experienced the same problem with 404 errors
It would be really useful if this feature worked, having to redeploy for minor updates is problematic when you are managing a number of UAGs for different clients.
bumping this up as I am experiencing the same issues.
I'll add that i have been able to open the links in a browser and do see some files but not the files that the updater is looking for.
I have opened a case with VMWare but no response yet
The update mechanism you found in the GUI is only for authorized OS updates within the same version. These hardly ever come out. As the manual says:
Occasionally, VMware might authorize the update of one or more OS packages to rectify a critical vulnerability that affects a specific version of Unified Access Gateway and for which no viable workaround is available.
The only way to update to a new version of the UAG is to export the current configuration, deploy a new version of the appliance and import the saved configuration.
