Issue: Error processing the Dell Update Catalog
Cause: Dell changed some values within the Dell Updates Catalog. The changes resulted in K1000 Appliance processing errors on the catalog while trying to import the new catalog. The K1000 log (kbox_log) shows the following error message:

Microsoft Office patches that close Microsoft applications during the deployment
The following patches will close the Microsoft Application during the deployment of the patch:
Microsoft recommends stopping all affected services and closing all applications that may use the affected files before installing the update.
If the required files are being used, the application may automatically close. Auto-recovery can be used to restore open documents.
Today Microsoft released a new update to replace KB2823324, which was originally made available through MS13-036. As they previously discussed, they stopped distributing this update when they learned some customers were having issues. The new update, KB2840149, still addresses the Moderate security issue described in MS13-036, and should not cause these issues. If you have automatic updates enabled, you won’t need to take any actions. For those manually updating, they encourage you to apply this update at your earliest convenience
In addition to the above re-release for the patch, Lumension has also released a removal script (categorized as a Software Installer) for this as well titled:
System Management - Removal Only: MS13-036 Security Update for Windows (KB2823324)
You do not need to uninstall the expired 2823324 update before applying the 2840149 update; however, Microsoft strongly recommends it.
If you do not remove the expired update, you will retain a listing for 2823324 under installed updates so you can use the new System Management patch.
