fetch full installer command 'FAILED TO SET OBJECT OF CLASS'

Valued Contributor II

hi, does anyone know what this message means? It doesn't matter what macOS I try to fetch, and it doesn't matter from what Mac laptop I'm running the command from.

softwareupdate --fetch-full-installer --fetch-installer-version 11.2.3
softwareupdate --fetch-full-installer --fetch-installer-version 10.15.7

see picture of the message that the terminal shows. BUT as you see from the picture it is actually downloading the macOS.

but due to the message f7aa9d8fcce84cdc9a5ef15a77517871
I'm concerned that it might be corrupt??

I've seen that a few times as well. Doesn't seem to be an issue as the installer comes down without issue as I've used it to run the startosinstall -eraseinstall options.
