Sensors updates aborting


I noticed that the last couple of days I was not getting sensor updates.  When trying to manually download the updates I got the following error message:

   "Specified user is not authorized for downloading file  Operation aborted."

Because of this I am not getting specific updates.

I have been able to download successfully in the past.  Any ideas why this is happening?

Update:  I also noticed that it seems to be downloading all the .zip files again after I already have them and is literally taking hours to do.  Not sure why this is happening.

Re: Sensors updates aborting

Are you manually able to download a signature package using your CCO id ?

what model sensor is it ? can you get me the output of show stat host ?

Re: Sensors updates aborting

Yes, I can manually download the signature package via my CCO login.

The issues is my daily auto updates via my CSM.  They aren't auto  downloading, applying and deploying, so I'm pretty sure it's not an issue with  my IPS devices, however, this is my show stat host info:

I removed the ip/mac address info.  It's also not only signatures but all packages associated with IPS
