Using the ArcGIS Enterprise Patch Notification utility with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8.1, a number of patches are shown as available. 

Clicking Install Security Patches opens the Install Patches window with the security patches listed.

Clicking Install All Patches does nothing.

Also, I see that there are 3 entries for Mapping and Charting Solutions 10.8.1 Patch 7 (Desktop | Server) in the list of available patches. Downloading any of these 3 entries does nothing.

And running from the command line results in the following error:

patchnotification.bat -c -i all

So then, I tried downloading and installing the Mapping and Charting Solutions 10.8.1 Patch 7 and installing manually. I get the error message that it can't be installed because the component is missing. Of course it is, because I didn't install it. So why is the Patch Notification utility trying to download and install it?

After clicking on individual patches to download and install them, I got to the very last patch in the list: ArcGIS Server Annotation Layer Performance Improvement Patch. Clicking on this to download and install results in an error. If I go to the Esri site to manually download and install, then it installs fine. After doing that, NOW clicking on the Install All Patches button works. So, I spent 2 hours babysitting patch installs because of this bug.

Of course, I still get errors from the Mapping and Charting Solutions 10.8.1 Patch 7.

I went through a near identical process as above last week.  I was also able to manually update the ArcGIS Server Annotation Layer Performance Improvement Patch.  I however am also still unable to get the other patches to download.  Just tried again to see if anything changed and it hasn't.
