Installation Of The Package Failed While Installing CU On SharePoint 2013

This applies to SharePoint 2010 and 2013.


While installing CU on SharePoint 2013 Server, we got an error given below.

It says The installation of this package failed.



  1. Missing cab files, all the files cab and exe file should be in the same folder.
  2. Also, check the size of the files that you downloaded and double check with Microsoft site.
  3. Above two are not the reason for failure.Now, check the name of your cab file. It should be like or; it cannot be ubserv_1(1).cab or ubserv_2(1).cab. This can also cause installation failure.
  4. Download CU from the Microsoft site and install it again.
Hope, it helps.

Happy SharePointing.
