Update Failed. Unable to move the file. Error Code 146

Hello,

I've attempted to update the latests updates of Animate and Bridge on my MacBook Pro Laptop with Mac OS 10.13.2. High Sierra.  Each time I attempt to do so, I get the Error Message: "Update Failed.  Unable to move the file.  Rename the file and try again."

I've attempted to do the update several times including after a computer restart and after uninstalling and installing the Creative Cloud Desktop App.  I also attempted to do a new install of the apps, to no avail.

The Error Summary is:

Exit Code: 146

-------------------------------------- Summary --------------------------------------

- 2 fatal error(s), 0 error(s), 1 warnings(s)

FATAL: Error (Code = 146) executing in command 'MoveDirectoryCommand' for package: 'AdobeAnimate18.0-mul', version:18.0.1.115

FATAL: Error occurred in install of package (Name: AdobeAnimate18.0-mul Version: 18.0.1.115). Error code: '146'

WARN: Failed to move directory '/.adobeTemp/133B205F-2DF6-400C-8AE8-A002E7F8BDEF/1/mul/AppFiles' to '/System/Library/Components/PDFImporter.component/Adobe Animate CC 2018'

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've successfully completed the updates on my iMac with Mac OS 10.12.6.  Sierra.

Is there any incompatibility between Creative Cloud and High Sierra?

When it says "Rename the file and try again" where is the file located and what do you rename it to?  This is not clear at all.

Any other suggestions?

Thank you!

I just spent an hour with Apple tech support working on getting this issue resolved.  We first attempted to simply do an update logged in as a root user.  That did not do it.

What did finally work was to disable the System Integrity Protection.  Once that was disabled, the update proceeded successfully.  Apple had me re-enable System Integrity Protection once the update was completed.

The only problem is that every time I need to do an Adobe update I will need to disable the System Integrity Protection and then enable it again.  This is a rather cumbersome approach to updates.

Please bring this to the attention of Adobe developers.  Apple said that Adobe should be able to correct this in future updates.

Thank you.

It seems to be a problem with missing permissions. Do you work as an admin or an user with admin rights?

Try to install under the root user account How to enable the root user on your Mac or change your root password - Apple Support or a new user with admin rights Install or run Adobe applications in new user account | Mac OS X .

I'm confused.  On this computer, I'm listed as the administrator and when I log in I use the administrator password which I always do.  Nothing has changed on this computer, other than the upgrade from Sierra to High Sierra, and I've been able to update Creative Cloud apps for a long time with no issues.

So, if I'm already logging in as the administrator aren't I already logging in under the root account?  Or, are you advising I create a new root account?

Please advise.  Thanks.

I just installed Muse CC to see what would happen if I installed a new app that I had not installed before.  It installed just fine.

I went back to the update of Animate CC and I got the same error messages as described above.

Please reply to my root related questions immediately above the Moving response above or offer any other suggestions that might help.

Thank you!

Hi all,

I’m experiencing the same error code updating Premier (on High Sierra). In case you’re still struggling with this and don’t want to take the Correct Answer route, I successfully updated by uninstalling the app through the Applications folder > [Adobe app] folder > Uninstall… as opposed to the Creative Cloud portal which doesn’t give you the option once the error is produced, and then installing again instead of updating. Note, I didn’t try keeping my preferences. Reply if you are successful while keeping your preferences.
