    Same problem here - used a completly wiped new OPO and neither the first zip file I downloaded (the one with "cm-bacon-3628510d...") nor the adapted one ("cm-bacon-XNPH38R") worked for me. As I said my phone is as clean as possible, just received it yesterday.

    I can't get mine to update either, I keep getting the message

    "assert failed: apply_patch_check ("/system/framework/apache-xml.jar" , "*string of numbers*")
    E:Installation error in tmp/sideload/package.zip
    (status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    I have no idea what to do, can someone help?

    I'm on complete stock, no unlock or root etc. Got the phone a week ago.

    Untick verify zip signature in TWRP settings. And then do the whole process again. Worked for me

    U have a corrupted cm11. Probably some old colouros files on there still. i had the same problem. Found a 15 seconds cmd tool or something. Entered like 15 commands and reinstalled a clean cm11 verification problemen disappeared. It is a lot of effort, but worth it, just try to find the 15second thing that is noob friendly! Not the instruction manuals with a 100 things to do and download! Im not going to search it for you since i have other things to do

    For people getting this error, make sure your phone is actually booting into custom recovery (TWRP, etc.), NOT Cyanogen recovery. As noted at the bottom of this TWRP page, the phone may automatically revert to default recovery on reboot unless you press power + vol down immediately after you "fastboot reboot" (after flashing recovery). This fixed the issue for me.

    edit: lol oops, thought this thread was for the OxygenOS update. Anyway, hope it helps someone. This was the first Google search result for this error text.

    Well that post helped me update my one. Thanks kkuramura.

    macem29, to paraphrase bon jovi, you give internet forums a bad name.

    I think you get this error when your phone is not rooted.I had the same problem but solved it by rooting the phone.
