Hi @Surya_vm2020 are you using WSUS or downloading updates from internet? maybe it is just a communication issue but this is the basic diagnostic!

we are using WSUS server ,

@Surya_vm2020 the updates were applied correctly in the wsus server and preferably it was restarted? did you make any changes to any policy related with updates? do you have a test server to try aplying updates directly from internet?

we are not suppose to apply the patches direct downloading from internet ,However we have to identify the problem why this server has failed windows updates , same updates i will successfully did windows for 28 servers only this server having the issue unable to do windows updates , i tried to do install the KB's one by one , result is fail

@Surya_vm2020 what does mean "unable to do windows updates" any error?, just not working?

are other servers in the same GPO applying the same update policy working?

Highlighted
Same GPO is applied for all server including this server , and ERROR : Windows Updates were failed (September Month security Updates ).
Kindly find my attached screenshot in my first message
