I have 6 servers all running Windows Server 2016. They are all setup almost identically. One server continues to fail on 2 Windows Updates over and over. Is there away to ignore those 2 updates so server does not keep trying to install them or is there a way to figure out why the updates constantly fail? The two updates are KB4550929 and KB4540670

If you click on Failed to update on xx/xx/xxxx may return and error code. Updates are now cumulative so you could wait for next monthly but it contain new fixes plus previous monthly so likely the same issue.

It doesn't say much. Here is what it shows when I click on Failed

You may need to review the \windowsupdate.log, \cbs.log, \dism.log files for more clues.
