Automatic updates disabled by group policy but no policy exists to disable them?

New Contributor

We are working on moving one of our domains to Windows 10. We have several test machines set up as Hybrid AAD joined.


The machines are all reporting that Automatic Updates have been disabled by Group Policy. However, there are no policies set up on the domain that control Automatic Updates. I ran a gpresult on one of the machines and the report does not contain any information suggesting the Automatic Update settings have been changed.


We have Automatic Updates configured as 'Auto install and restart at a scheduled time' in Intune, and we also have the 'MDM wins over GP' setting set.


The machines do appear to be updating themselves, however, Windows Update reporting that updates are disabled is an issue as we can't install anything from the Microsoft Store as it stated that Windows Update is turned off.


Any ideas?
