mass action - update iOS not working

New Contributor

Jamf pro cloud - ipads/Iphones not updating using mass action command download, install, and restart devices.

They have full battery. One is on wifi, one connected ethernet using an adapter, another device is using mobile data. Under the management commands on the device, the scheduleOS update command is just pending, and there's hundreds of them. Like it's trying every day, all day long for the last week.

I saw some posts from a couple years ago on the jamf nation forum discussing this issue with no resolution. Has anyone else experienced this?

Did you try to do a mass update for iOS 15.7? Looks like there is a product issue for that update, but iOS 16 works.
