Has anyone seen this error in Smart Switch when attempting to update software?
See attached screenshot

This is happening for me on any PC I attempt to run this update on (3 different Windows 10 Pro boxes). Everytime it fails, it is at 85%
Smart Switch version: 4.1.17042_12
Tab S2: T710 currently running T710XXU2CPK1
Security Patch: December 2016

When running the update on the device manually, it says 'Up to date'

Any suggestions/thoughts to fix this and get the update to run via Smart Switch? I'd prefer not having to do the update and have the device wiped.

TIA

Must be corrupt. Updating does not wipe your device.

I ended up re-initialization, which did wipe it, and it installed without issue. Something must have been up with my Android install on the device. I don't know how the download would be corrupt for 3 different computers, unless the image being downloaded was the issue (but that image still worked with initialization).

Little late now I guess but...

When you start the initialization process and it begins to download (xx%) unplug the device from your PC so it doesn't get wiped. After download reaches 100% (takes a bit be patient) go to the below folder location. Copy the files in it (there will be 3) and paste them to the folder of your choice in/near odins folder to make them easy to find.

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Temp\tmpxxxx.tmp.zipfolder

The 3 files begin with:
AP
BL
CSC
you can Odin them one at a time in the AP slot or all at once in the corresponding slots:
AP slot
BL slot
CSC slot

I've done this many times and it works perfectly.
Good info for future reference.
