Invalid Client Package after applying 2010 build with KB4594177 hotfix

The issue was first uncovered by errors during OSD deployments, failing with 80040104 on the Client Package ID:

I tracked this down to content on the CAS, and subsequently all DPs containing invalid packages, inside cd.latest\smssetup\client\i386 and x64 folders containing files with 0 kb in size:

Super frustrating. And then confirmed by finding these "WARNING: File hash mismatch for" under CMUpdate.log which didn't bother to flag any errors:

Has anyone ever run into this type of issue before? Is there an easy way to force a redownload and a reapply of the update that would have contained this content?

    After playing around with boot images, and the client package with all sorts of options to redistribute/validate. I started looking at my task sequences because they also consumed the boot images, and because I got myself into a position where smspxe.log started to show "no advertisements found" error, I stumbled upon this article that dealt with a similar issue: https://www.lieben.nu/liebensraum/2014/05/unknown-computer-support-and-multiple-boot-images/

    In the end, the resolution was to just delete my task sequence deployment to "All unknown computers" and deploy it again. Hopefully this helps someone else out there.

    I just realized that it might be resolved by running the Update Reset Tool, although I have never done that on update that the system considers be already be installed successfully? Would it be safe to to run the tool as described here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/servers/manage/update-reset-tool against the 2010 update? Would it be offered to be re-installed?

    Hi, @Dennis Benz
    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.
    My cd.latest\smssetup\client\i386 and x64 folders also contains files with 0 kb, you may try the solution to see if it helps:

    Run setupdl.exe in the bin\x64 file (of the SCCM install source directory), we can get non-zero versions of the 0 KB files we had in the Client install directory, then copy the non-zero KB files into the Client install directory, update Distribution points, and everything may work well.
