I dumped some games to my SD-Card and installed it with FBI. All worked fine. Two dumped games want to make an update, but if I do that, it failed. If I go into the eShop and choose Available Updates -> then repair it can't find an error. If I nevertheless want to repair (download again) it failed. If I insert the original game card there is no updae available, only at the dumped game.

The two games are Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.

Any ideas?

Don't want to use illegal tricks. Is there no other way? How it seems is the update message an error and there is none.

if you have a android phone or windows computer you can use wii u usb helper to download the updates, and pack them to cia and install the updates with fbi, it isn't illegal to download updates, they are free for everybody

Did you happen to use GodMode9 version 1.5.0 to dump your games into CIA format? Just checking as this version has a bug in CIA conversion.

    you can bypass the chip by "tricking it" into thinking the power is clean but that kludge simply didn't work on mine

    There are ways to sort it but they are unpleasant and expensive. Far easier to do a vinyl wrap/cover in electrical tape.

    Seems to be a more hot climate thing as well; had several in or come out of Africa with that way before I saw it in Europe

    Can also happen if you leave it in a cold, damp room for years and years.
