Updating CE 7.11 to SP3 fails with ceupdatemanager


I'm trying to apply patch SPS 3 on my CE 7.11 EHP 1 system, but it fails in ceupdatemanager. This is a manual update becuase there is a dependency betweem MII 12.1 and CE 7.11 EHP 1 SPS 3; and if I were to execute an automatic update, then SPS 4 would be the target - I don't want that. This is the following message from ceupdatemanager:

"Could not create deployment queue in JSPM. Support package stacke /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in/SPSTab.xml was rejected. For details see scan inbox log in current JSPM log directory...."

After reviewing the SCAN_INBOX_01.log file, the only error message I can find is the following:

" Apr 14, 2010 5:32:57 AM [Error]: File /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in/XICNTSAPBASIS03_0-10005649.ZIP is not a valid SDU file. Stack definition file /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in/SPSTab.xml is rejected.

Apr 14, 2010 5:32:57 AM [Error]: The information about the development component found in the manifest is either missing or incomplete!

Manifest attributes are missing or have badly formatted value:

attribute keylocation is missing

attribute keyname is missing

attribute keyvendor is missing

attribute keycounter is missing


Apr 14, 2010 5:32:57 AM [Error]: File /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in/XICNTSAPBASIS03_0-10005649.ZIP is not a valid SDA or SCA file.

Apr 14, 2010 5:32:57 AM [Error]: Stack definition file /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in/SPSTab.xml is rejected. Download a new version on SAP Service Marketplace and try again."

I've tried regenerating the SPSTab.xml file several times in SMP, but I keep getting the same error message. The Kernel and CEUPDATE both get updated successfully. The error comes in Phase 3, were the system update occurrs.

Any suggestions?
