I did some research and found out that the SharePoint 2010 Cumulative Update December 2012 should fix some problems of the User Profile Service (still wondering why this could pass the quality control…).
<li>1.The <strong>UserProfileManager.GetUserProfile</strong> method returns incorrect user profiles inSharePoint Server2010.</li>
<li>2.An administrator cannot uploadauser’sprofile picture toCentral Administration inSharePoint Server2010.Additionally,the administrator receives the following error message:</li>
<li>There was an error saving the picture.Please tryagain later.</li>
So after 3 times downloading the 1.1gb uber-patch (it includes the SharePoint Foundation updates and the languages packs) I started the updated and … waited. I really dont know how long it took to update, after 30 Minutes of no progress I decided to go to bed – this morning I saw the update was successfully installed. After that I rebooted.
Remember: After the update you have to run
psconfig-cmd upgrade-inplace b2b-wait
or the SharePoint Configuration Wizard to update the Content-DBs and get every other bit updated.
