My farm started flashing errors in the 'Products and Patch Status' step in the Configuration Wizard and prevents the Wizard form moving ahead. However, I know that the patches are installed and attempting to reinstall them fails as it's installer says there are not any products affected by the patch. However, I can bypass the wizard successfully using the following command line.

psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd -installcheck -noinstallcheck

Running this performs smoothly with no errors however I still see the same errors when running the Wizard later. Seems like something is out of wack and I would like to identify it and clear it up. The sites runs fine nonetheless.

If I run the psconfig command with the installcheck this is the following message as it relates to the missing components.

Update:
As a followup. My environment did revert back to showing those errors in the wizard so I decided to remove the server from the farm and uninstall/reinstall SharePoint. However the installers would not run saying ther wer corrupt leaving me with the only option left of reimaging my machines and starting over. What a pain.

Thanks for this. Altough I did install the SP2010 foundation SP1 (then run the config wizard) followed by the SO2010 Server SP1, I could not run the Config Wizard on my two other servers because it was complaining about missing patches. So the Foundation and Server SP2010 SP1 packages were installed, so I've installed the June CU on all serves and ran the command mentionned above (psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd -installcheck -noinstallcheck) which worked like a charm. I was then able to start the Config Waizard which did not complain anymore. 8-) –  user4533 Aug 23 '11 at 14:14

The Get-SPProduct –local didn't do the trick for me however. But for me the problem is a bit more simple or complicated. I am trying to add a server to a farm (2-tier farm 1 wfe, 1 db). The server is an SQL Reporting Server, where, for integrated services I installed SharePoint. However, the farm has 2 languages (English and Dutch). When trying to connect the server, it will complain about: A. both languages not being installed (yes, really) and also all other languages are not installed....and B. Of course the SP1 for Languages of Foundations (it is an SharePoint Enterprise Server) are not present....

I get really annoyed, hope one of you guys have some pointer

Clearing Configuration Wizard and refresh Config Wizard worked for me.
