Microsoft on Thursday said it is blocking downloads of the recently released Service Pack 1 (SP1) for SharePoint Server 2013.
“As a precautionary measure, we have deactivated the download page until a new package is published,” a Microsoft support article states. The problem appears to be that some organizations have had problems getting cumulative updates or patches after installing the service pack, according to the article.
No information was provided about when an updated service pack would be available. At press time, attempting to download SP1 for SharePoint Server 2013 returns a page not found message.
SP1 contains 45 bug fixes specifically for SharePoint Server 2013. It also includes all security updates released through January, plus all cumulative updates through December.
