One Step Update "An error has occurred" message - indeed!

Over the past several days when using the One Step Update and Update Transactions on my Air Academy Federal Credit Union checking account I have been getting "an error has occurred" with no error code. I have gone to the on-line services and de-activated the account and then re-activated it. I WAS able to download the recent transactions, but unfortunately when I try it again, the error message continues. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Hello @TrapperCOS

    Thank you for reaching out on the community and telling us about your issue. I do apologize in the issue you're having. That is odd I'm wondering where exactly the issue is. I believe in this case it might help trying to see on a test file if we have a similar issue. This will give us a better idea of where exactly the issue is. I'll leave steps down below and you can find it on the third step on the article.


    Once you get the chance let us know what you're able to find out. From there we'll see what we're able to do next.

    I had the same problem a couple of weeks ago. Schwab, Fidelity and Vanguard accounts were experiencing this on every One Step Update. After a few days, the errors went away and all was good for a week. Just a few minutes ago, it happened again. Same accounts. Previously, I had also tried to reset the accounts and deactivate/reactivate with no success. If this was a corrupt file or something, why would it start working again? Seems like something else at work here to me.

    I found an R28.18 build on my laptop and installed it. It's from last August. It seems to take a little longer to update, but my errors are gone now. I think I will stay on this release for a while.

    I created a new test file according to your instructions and the error did NOT appear in the new file. I read through the Step 4: "Copy your file and validate" and the "validate" process does not appear to apply to my situation. I am not experiencing one of the listed issues; the steps will not help. Do you have any other suggestions? :#

    For the last several days all One Step Updates with Vanguard return "an error has occurred" with no error code. I get the same result if I individually update each of my accounts. I have reset the accounts but no success.
