DEBUG;There was a problem getting the content for this update.  Make sure that this device has valid content servers configured via closest server rules and that the content replication has occured to this device's content server(s);;

Resolution

Run the ZDC (ZENworks Diagnostic Center) and check the zmd.dll version (for example):

File 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Novell\ZENworks\bin\zmd.dll' is inconsistent!!!
Size: expected = 1081344, actual = 1064960
Checksum: expected = 4381d629, actual = a7d45f28



If the zmd.dll is incorrect:
- Replace with a copy that passes the ZDC test
- Restart the ZCM services
- Repeat the System Update process
