I have been looking at an issue on a farm that I have not worked on before related to patching failing...
If I run the SharePoint config wizard it errors multiple times...saying missing items - 60 of them.
If I download a security update and do a manual install then I get this error: "An error occurred during detection"
Not one patch will install - they all fail when installed manually even when freshly download so not corrupt or anything basic.
Logs do not shout a solution...
Any ideas/tips please?
