Managed Software Center Not installing Packages

I come from a casper environment but one of our sites uses munki. I'm pretty new to munki and it was setup by my predecessor.

The issue is when I imaged computers it looks like some of the packages didn't install. No big deal I'll just check for updates with the software center.

I click check for updates and it finds 5-13 packages that need installed. I click update and it either sits and does nothing, or "finishes" quickly, but only downloads the packages to /Library/Managed Installs/cache" and doesn't install them. I haven't changed anything that my predecessor did other than use autopkg to update a few of the paackages. i.e. chrome from version 30 to version 60.

One of the errors I find is ""hdiutil attach failed - Operation timed out" While mounting". But I can manually mount the dmg and install the software.

If I look at the "Install.log" on one of the computers is shows the following errors: Flash, Shockwave error return code 1. Google Chrome failed with error return code -1.

Any help would be appreciated.

This topic doesn't really have to do with MunkiWebAdmin, a web-based administration tool for Munki.

It's probably better suited for the munki-discuss list:
