Portable Update file name database fails / Update MiKTeX fails

Henning Haida
Hi all,

I just did a fresh install of MiKTeX portable
(miktex-portable-2.9.6361.exe) and successfully compiled a document
(pdflatex). Doing this, MiKTeX automatically installed missing packages
on the fly.

Just after that I tried to update the installation. This led to the
following error message. An update of the file name database shows the
same error.

Any help is appreciated!
