No Definition Updates in over a day

Recommended Posts

The last time Definition updates happened was 6/24/2019 15595.

According to the website the newest is 6/25/2019 15600.

Looks like no updates from 6/25/2019 are being allowed to post.

I tried requesting updates and it tells me I am up to date with 15595.

I also tried the Manual Definition update , but nothing updates. It stays at 15595..

What Am I doing wrong?

Thank you for your help!

Hi,

I have a similar problem: I just updated SAS Pro to latest version 8.0.1040 and database version is now 15598 but should be 15600 ...

( Win10 1903 - Build 18362.207)

Thanks for your help!

Based on your note I looked and my SAS version is still at 8.0.138.

It looks like an update was posted yesterday, however , I have not been notified and can not update yet.

I also , still can not get definition updates above 15595.

Maybe when I get the notification to update to SAS 8.0.1040 , it will then allow definition updates.

Maybe someone from SAS will let us know.

Thanks for your comments.

Hi KEL1,

I updated manually to version 8.0.1040 (installation over the top) AND asked for a database check. However, as mentioned previously, database updated to version 15598 only (I just see that the latest one is now 15601 already!).

And I can confirm: with SAS version 8.0.1038, the database version stays at 15595. 

Hopefully SAS reacts quickly on this annoying issue.

I just did the exact same thing. Rather than wait for a notification, just like you I manually updated to version 8.0.1040(installation over the top) AND asked for database check.  And just like you it only takes me to 15598 instead of the 15601 that is listed as available.

 

Thanks for all your input.  It helps !

So I got myself to:

SAS version 8.081040

Database Definitions: 15598

By doing the Manual update of the SAS version from the website.

 

Then I got a reply from Customer support that asked me to run the Force Update tool and they sent me the link.

I ran the tool and it set my Definitions back to 15595!

 

Wow , now I am really confused.

 

It shouldn't be so hard!

Thanks for the info; based on your experience I will certainly not try a manual (forced) database update (downloads can be found on this page).

I'm still on  DB version 15598 and SAS tells me I'm up to date .... (and we know that this is not correct).

There seems to be some kind of bug in the update procedure; hopefully someone from SAS will give us an explanation very soon.

Just updated to the newest definition update 15601. The program did the update itself. Go figure....

Thanks for the heads-up.

I just opened SAS and asked for the DB update and it worked.

Now I am up to date at 15601.

Look like  someone was able to fix the issue.

Updates of the DB are working fine now (automatically and manually by opening SAS): I'm now on the latest version 15602.

So yes, the issue seems to be fixed now.
