We're proud to announce that Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Update Rollup 6 released Thursday, Jan. 12th,2012!
On Friday Jan. 13th, 2012 at 8 AM Pacific Standard Time, Greg Nichols and Ryan Anderson from the Microsoft Premier Field Engineering team, as well as Corey Hanson, Supportability Program Manager for Microsoft Dynamics CRM, provided information about the recent release of Update Rollup 6 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011. They also discussed the upcoming release of Update Rollup 21 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 during their:

Note: The CRM 2011 Update Rollup 6 packages, originally released on Jan. 12th, 2011, were recalled early Jan. 13th. If you have downloaded any of these packages (build 1985) please discard them and download new versions available now (build 9692.1992). The new packages were released Saturday, Jan. 21st.
If you did new installs with the Update Rollup 6 "slipstream" packages that were released (these would be the packages that include the full install bits as well as Update Rollup 6) you will get an error trying to patch those components to the new Update Rollup 6 build. This Knowledge Base article describes the issue:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2668504 . This Knowledge Base article is live, as well as the updated Update Rollup 6 KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2600640.
The only workaround is to reinstall if you happened to use the Update Rollup 6 slipstream builds. For server you can connect to existing databases on the reinstall. The reinstall goes for any of the components that you installed with the Update Rollup 6 slipstream builds, (Client, Router, etc.). If you do not reinstall you will not be able to patch to the re-released Update Rollup 6 packages or future Update Rollups, as Update Rollup 6 represents a new baseline.

Update Rollup 6 Build number:
Note: Update Rollup 6 cannot be uninstalled. Specific database updates are applied during Update Rollup 6 installation that will not let you uninstall Update Rollup 6. You should back up your databases and application servers before you install this update.
Note: Update Rollup 6 establishes a new servicing baseline. This will enable uninstalls of some future CRM 2011 Update Rollups, but this also means that Update Rollup 6 will be a prerequisite for installation of post-Update Rollup 6 Update Rollups.
Note: As Update Rollup 6 is cumulative, containing all changes released in earlier Update Rollup releases, it also contains the Dynamics CRM Q4 Service Update features released via Update Rollup 5. Some of these features include:
