I had a case where my customer is experiencing an error on their SCOM Console when attempting to resolve an agent Pending Upgrade in Pending Management. The Agent needed to be upgraded from the SCOM 2019 Agent to the SCOM 2022 Agent. We reviewed the Log file: Agent1AgentInstall.Log located in the following directory: C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center\Operations Manager\Server\AgentManagement\AgentLogs.

Discovery Wizard Error:

The Agent Management Operation Agent Install failed for remote computer Agent1.contoso.com. 



Install account: CONTOSO\SCOMAdmin 


Error Code: 80004021 


Error Description: The operation attempted is not supported. 


Microsoft Installer Error Description: 




For more information, see Windows Installer log file "C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center\Operations Manager\Server\AgentManagement\AgentLogs\Agent1AgentInstall.log" on the Management Server. 

The MSI error highlighted below was the main cause for the installation failure:

Action start 16:18:53: _SuppressComputerReboot.
MSI (s) (AC:F0) [16:18:53:021]: Skipping action: SetIS_NETFRAMEWORK_472_OR_LATER_INSTALLED (condition is false)
MSI (s) (AC:F0) [16:18:53:021]: Doing action: LaunchConditions
Action ended 16:18:53: _SuppressComputerReboot. Return value 1.
Action start 16:18:53: LaunchConditions.
MSI (s) (AC:F0) [16:18:53:021]: Product: Microsoft Monitoring Agent – The .NET Framework 4.7.2 is required to install this application.

The .NET Framework 4.7.2 is required to install this application.
Action ended 16:18:53: LaunchConditions. Return value 3.
Action ended 16:18:53: INSTALL. Return value 3.

We also attempted a manual install and this will also show you the error:
DotNET Missing MSI Error

After installing .NET Framework 4.7.2 as required for the SCOM 2022 Agent, the installation succeeded.
