When we try to update many devices remotely or manually, we get a warning like the one below. we did the necessary research for this but we could not find an uptodate and useful solution.
Error : (com.apple.OSInstallerSetup.error error 702.)
Restarting in safe mode
Redownload the package
procedures have been tried. remote and manual result error is the same
Anyone want to make suggestions on the subject?

Hey @DRprofile ,
I haven't seen this error yet but for remotely and automatically updating our Macs I have a two step setup which works quite well.
This worked pretty well on our Macs so far, just make sure this runs only on Macs capable of Monterey (regex: (MacBook(10|9)|MacBookAir(10|[7-9])|Macmini[7-9]|MacPro[6-7]|iMacPro1|iMac(1[6-9]|2[0-2])),\d|MacBookPro1(1,|[2-7],\d) ) and that FileVault 2 Partition Encryption State is not Encrypting.
As a result of step two we get a No such file or directory error, as described in one of my former posts, but that seems to be just cosmetic.
thank you for the feedback. We have the encoding you said and remotely we are getting the same error.
After opening the package and entering the admin password time appears as 3 hours 46 minutes and decreases to 3 hours but then the 702 warning occurs.
After completely deleting MDM on 2 devices and then restarting, I reinstalled the package and this time it started with 56 minutes. And as a result the device was updated. Strangely enough there are " 702 " alerts on a large number of devices. and something like removing MDM on devices is not even up for debate.
We are trying to find out what could be preventing this in the conf profiles. when we search for this warning on the internet, it is stated that the same error occurred in El Capitan and Big Sur.
and in addition when we try to open any DMG file on these devices where we receive a 702 warning we get a warning that it could not be mounted.
I have seen quite a few issues upgrading to Monterey. I had one myself that I had to sort out saying the hardware was not compatible (M1 MBA with plenty of free storage). Some of the solutions are to make sure the target Mac is fully updated before attempting to install Monterey.
However, in my opinion it is too early to bother with wide scale deployments or in place upgrades of Monterey. Let other people find the problems and let apple sort the kinks out. I will not be even attempting an in place upgrade to Monterey in any form of deployable fashion until turn of the year. Being an early adopter has always caused more problems than good from my experiences.
I too ran into issues upgrading several managed machines to OS Monterey both remotely and manually. So far the only fix I've discovered for pushing the update is to:
I'm seeing this across a few users when trying to upgrade from Catalina to Big Sur or Monterey. I've performed First Aid on the drive and have tried going through the command line and the GUI with the same result. We have no config profiles restricting the disk in any way. My next step is to try booting in Safe Mode to see the result.
Alright guys I think I got this figured out. To avoid the 702 error I went into Jamf > Configuration Profiles> Media and unchecked "require authentication" under Recordable disks. After this I needed to restart the computer and was able to install the latest OS without issue. Good Luck!
