I have upgraded my SQL Anywhere 16 database to the latest version, i. e. on OS X 10.10.5. If I check again for updates, I get the message "Updates Are Available". As the installed version is already the latest, what does this message mean? I also did install the latest update once again, with no effect. I get the above message on all of our development machines (OS X based).

This might be caused by a few things:

1) There is a component in your install that (somehow) did not get upgraded when you applied the 2087 patch, or

2) There is a documentation update, or

3) You may simply be getting this message (from Sybase Central) because there is a newer release available (i.e. v17).

Could you edit your question and add the "GetUpdates" URL that is contained at the bottom of the installed.ini file (this file should be located in the installation root director). I.e. at the bottom of the file you will see something similar to:


Post the GetUpdates= URL. (Note: Do not change the file!)

With this URL info we can determine exactly why you are getting the message.

I added the GetUpdates URL and btw, this is the Website I get when clicking Yes on the update dialog.

So it seems that to get updates you must have a paid support plan and download from that page. See my other case:

Note that if you have paid support, you are allowed to update free Developer Editions to the newest SPs, too - cf. my older FAQ and Jason's official answer.
