Incorrect "Install Type" causes error "There are no updates available for your Notes client release" during Smart Upgrade
Your workstation only possesses and installation of the regular Lotus Notes client (no Domino Designer nor Domino Administrator). When the Smart Upgrade process runs, your select "Notes client only" for the Install Type in the Smart Upgrade kit document, and the client returns an error:
"There are no updates available for your Notes client Release <release>. There were no matching kits found in the Smart Upgrade database <database name> on <server name>."
In this case, it was caused by the user having the incorrect value for InstallType= in the Notes.ini file.
InstallType=2: All clients installation (Lotus Notes, Domino Designer, Domino Administrator)InstallType=6: Notes Client only installation
Even though you can use the "All client" installation package to install Notes, and then disable the installation of Designer and Administrator, the fact that the "All client' package was used will set the InstallType= value equal to "2" in the notes.ini file. Therefore, the Smart Upgrade process will be confused when that process runs.
Resolving the problem
Modify the "Smart Upgrade Kit: Upgrading" document to reflect "Install Type:" equal to "All client". With this configuration in place, the existing installations to be detected by Smart Upgrade will be detected and upgraded.
