ERROR MESSAGE: SQL Server Setup has encountered the following error:
This action is only valid for products that are currently installed.
SYSTEM: New VM Windows Server 2016 fully patched with .Net 3.5 feature installed.
I tried the package with SP2 first on a brand new server and got error message.
Then tried the SP1 installer I had and got same error message.
I have another server spun up and get the exact same error message? How can this be on 2 clean servers with MSSQL never installed?
Tried 2/3 times,
Running as Admin.
Check programs to see if installed already just in case but no.
