Hi Guna,

For Error 1: Directory /usr/sap/D01/SYS/exe/run does not exist or is not read/writeable

Solution: just go through usr/sap/D01/SYS/exe > chmod -R 755 run

or do for total exe like chmod -R 755 exe

For Error 2: Errors occurred during CHECK OF UPDATE TASK

Solution : use the transaction sp13,and select all in the status tab and in date tab give 6 months or 1 year before

Then choose execute and delete all the update requests.

This will definetely resolves your issue. Let me know if you need anything else.
