A Good Reason to not Patch Skype for Business Server During Install

Skype for Business Server Update Error

I had chosen during install of Skype for Business Server to have the installation updated automatically.  When I reviewed the logs it appeared the patch installation was at fault.  I tried to update with SkypeServerUpdateInstaller.exe but ultimately, it failed.

Unfortunately, it seemed the quickest way to resolve the problem was to uninstall what I had already installed and re-install without automatically updating.  Then after the installation was finished, manually update the installation with SkypeServer UpdateInstaller.exe.

The moral of the story is to perform a clean install WITHOUT automatically updating and then perform the update manually after the install is complete.
