This is the most plausible explanation I've seen yet.  When you create
a DFU program which is to be saved (using STRDFU not UPDDTA), one of
the options is "Suppress errors" Y or N.  The default seems to be the
last value specified by the user for the last DFU program

So perhaps UPDTA picks up the same default based on the user profile,
and the last saved DFU program had specified suppress errors = Y.


Try STRDFU, then create a DFU for any file you want.  See if the
default shows up as Y or N for suppress errors.  I'm guessing Y.
Change it to N and create a DFU program.  Delete the DFU program.

Rerun your UPDDTA, and see if you now get the same errors as everybody
