I did a test by setting the Java options for the instance user, and
restarted the instance.

As well i set the Java options for usage by the OPC.

-> unchanged situation -> download of packages is failing.

Not the OC which is downloading the software packages.
The "Deploy Package Manager" (integrated in the dsmserv binary?)
triggers the download / refresh / etc. of the software packages.

I did not see any other java processes than the OPC GUI when the
message "ANR3753I The client update packages manager is started. /
ANR3756I A refresh of client update packeges was started."

So I assume dsmserv does not start any Java based sub-processes for
downloading the software packages.
