Pinned topic WAS 6.1 to 6.1.0.11 update failure

‏2007-10-09T15:45:04Z |
I'm trying to update a base 6.1 install with the 6.1.0.11 fix pack. Unfortunately, I'm getting the error below from the Update Installer. It complains about file ownership but the Update Installer, fix packs, the existing WAS install and the one and only profile are all owned by root - and I am root while trying to run the update...ideas?

    Hi,

    Are you using the latest version of Update Installer?, sometimes Update
    Installer doesn't works because runs a different version that the fixes.

    Another typical problem under Linux is the correct settings on JAVA_HOME
    and PATH, must be used the provided with Update Installer.

    To download all the fixes use this link

    Regards,

      I am experiencing the same problem on 64 bit zLinux. I am using the 6.1.0.11 version of the installer and all the installs have been performed as root. There is no other java in the path and JAVA_HOME is not set so it must be picking up the java version from installer.

      Did you solve this problem ? Any one else have any ideas?
