I've been getting the same error for a few weeks.
However, I'm running a multi-site on one d7 code base. I had everything running for a few weeks, but then had the same error message when I tried to upgrade.

Try downloading the zip file

Oh also, profiles are updated in a different way. I wish you could do like "drush up openchurch" or something to update all of openchurch but basically the way you run updates is by downloading a newer version of OpenChurch and overwriting your local install (minus the sites folder).

You don't really want to update the OpenChurch files directly bc you essentially fork your installation. The best way to update a module if you really need a newer version is to download it to sites/all.

Can you tell me the actual steps you are trying to execute? Please be as specific as possible. There are several ways to update OpenChurch so I really need to know specifics.

I run a multi-site (one drupal code for multiple sites each with their own database each with their own base theme). So under my Sites folder I have several domains (abc.com; def.com; ghi.com). So do an OpenChurch install that includes Drupal core would cause problems like overwriting my Sites folder containing multiple domains. I think I grabbed the oc no-core tar ball to get things up and running.
I switched to OpenChurch theme 7.x_1.0beta3 when I was having problems with getting OpenChurch 7.x_1.11 (¿is this a non-theme? :-). Currently I have under the main drupal 7.17/Profiles folder the OpenChurch profile folder. Perhaps it should be in Sites/abc.com/Profiles/OpenChurch?

Don't download the theme. Download the non core openchurch package and add it to profiles/openchurch.

Thanks. I'm placed the non-core in Profiles and did a fresh install for a new domain in Sites.
I still got this The installation has encountered an error.
Please continue to the error page.

You can disable notices. Not sure what "Most of modules are not visible from the Admin | Modules overlay." A lot of times when people get errors when they don't have enough memory. Please review the documentation at http://openchurchsite.com/content/common-installation-problems
