Hi,

 

We have hyperv 2016 servers and the windows update doesn't want to work.

I installed the pswindowsupdate module as well, it sees the KBs but it doesn't install.

We are using WSUS server. How can I fix this issue or how can I troubleshoot where i s the issue?

Screenshot is unreadable. Might try manual download and install.

or for problems specific to WSUS reach out to subject matter experts in dedicated forum over here.

@Dave Patrick  Manual download from catalog and install works, but we need to patch hundreds of servers regularly you know so that one is not the best approach.

Might be able to script it
