I've been getting the exact same issue, tried reinstalling both the OS and DM and it didnt help. It would be great if someone had a solution for this.

Attempting to "add" jibi's .alx file won't do anything. It doesn't work that way. Make sure you've downloaded the correct OS package. Install it to the PC. Delete Vendor.xml (after installing the OS package) then connect BB and open Desktop manager. Should prompt you to upgrade.

I've done a hundred of updates, so I'm sure everything is done right. This happened when I tried downgrading from the new TIM OS.
