Last Updated October 26, 2015

To view additional details about the warning:
Click on the Home tab
In the "Security Status" pane click on "View Details"
In the new window that opens locate the first section "Content Category Download Problems"
This section will list the detailed information regarding the problem for example:
Problem: Latest Content not available Details: The Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager server does not have the latest content from the internal LiveUpdate Server Possible Solutions: Check your network connections to see if your SEPM server can access your internal LiveUpdate Server.
The SEPMs in the Local Site are configured to download from an internal LiveUpdate (LUA) server. The LUA server policy had only AntiVirus/AntiSpyware definitions checked. Additional content for Reputation, Submission Control Signatures, and Extended File Attributes and Signatures were not checked, but are actually required to prevent this warning.
This is working as designed. The following content needs to be enabled for download on the LUA server in order for the SEPM(s) to be able to download the content.
Virus and Spyware Definition
Submission Control Signatures
Extended File Attributes and Signatures
