Autopatcher 1.4.5 downloads nothing when just the first two items are selected, they are:
AutoPatcher Engine 5.7.31
So I visited the releases.list and found this:
Now when I vist the Script URL I get this:
This somehow seems to results in APUP 1.4.5 silently failing to download the engine.
Here is the log:
If you look at the log you supplied, you'll notice you selected scripts from the main releases.list - APUP 1.4.5 & AutoPatcher 5.7.5 - you already had APUP 1.4.5 so no need to download anything. It does appear there is something going on with the AutoPatcher Engine 5.7.5 script, I'm hoping some editing, it will eventually be back online. APUP 1.4.14 & AutoPatcher 5.7.31 are on the releases2.list, as you already know. It does appear there are issues with the script here as well, which is why I'm leaning towards some script editing going on behind the scenes. Regardless, the issues will be fixed.
If you downloaded APUP & AutoPatcher scripts from both lists from scratch you should have APUP 1.4.14, AutoPatcher 5.7.31 (no rti, Unofficial), & Sweeper 1.2.7. Once the issues get fixed, I would run APUP and select both scripts again from list 2, unless they are moved to the main list, update the release - then get your needed releases from the main list but uncheck APUP & AutoPatcher unless the versions are the same or greater than the versions in your \apup folder.

...I did figure this out you actually have to change releases.list to releases2.list
...do apup and the engine it will get the engine but report a failure,
...then switch back to releases.list and do it again then you actually have all the needed files.
...This is convulted though and the defaults should work, couldn't really find anything in the forums about it either only references to releases2.list which made me try them both and figure it out, I've had to sport questions from people I have recommended AutoPatcher to over this, generally leading them to believe the software is broken.
...Remember, releases2.list is a testing (beta) list so expect issues with scripts. It's not a good idea to download from the second list over your good (Official) releases - a release may become Unofficial. In the case of APUP and & AutoPatcher, it's a pretty good idea to update these files though, you might find a bug (in the software) and your report will help make the programs better. More importantly, the new features are really improving both applications so you want to be running the most recent versions. The software on releases2.list isn't ready for primetime but they should be stable enough to test, if not, they will be pulled from the list.
...The failure appears to be the .rti file, AutoPatcher will show as Unofficial - this will be addressed.
...I understand why you switched back, likely because of the 'Failed Files' error. In terms of APUP and AutoPatcher, once the problems are fixed, after updating APUP & AutoPatcher, avoid downloading older programs - make note of the version numbers on the list. Eventually the main list will include APUP 1.4.14 & AutoPatcher 5.7.31, until then, uncheck any scripts that over-write recent updates and take you backwards unless doing so fixes a serious problem the update caused - maybe at times this will be needed but not often.
...It's true there are only a few people keeping the project going, and almost no documentation but, don't jump out into traffic without looking first. If you aren't sure of something start a new thread, ask away. Hopefully someone will steer you in the right direction.
Using the forum's 'Advanced Search' feature, searching for key words will bring up numerous discussions. Searcheding the 'Development' subforum for 'releases2.list' I was presented with 8 pages. Search log files and make note of any error messages, then search the forums for solutions.
There's few new problems, mostly the same ones, only different scripts (bad code), updates (files, bad hash, size), download links (expire, change), server issues (ftp falls asleep), even team members (don't ask)... The AutoPatcher Team then needs to respond, but not always to a self-inflicted injury, somtimes issues arise from problems outside the project. Regardless, it's all defined under "Project Management". If you want a taste, grab a shovel, the project needs more people, some fresh new faces
