Importing Updates in WSUS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a hotfix I need to import into WSUS (KB4073290 for Windows 10).  I can find the update in the catalog, but the only option I am getting is "Download"  not "Add" and it is downloading the update not importing it in WSUS.  I follow the directions I find (click server name on left, then import updates on the right, enter patch number in search.  It finds the correct hotfix) but this is as far as the directions match what I see.

  • I have the same issue. I can manually install this patch, but i cant get it via WSUS or Windows Update? Microsoft please advise.

  • Hi, If I’m right in thinking, hotfixes (.MSU) can’t be imported into WSUS so can’t be deployed using that tool. You could use WUSA.EXE with some scripting or use a GPO to deploy the hotfix. Hope this helps.

  • Hi JoelCLCMCD,

    No any option to import downloaded updates into WSUS.

    You Have to use search option and find the update with relevant KB number. Then You can approve that. After approving that it's added into WSUS automatically....

  • Hi,

    make sure to use IE on the WSUS server itself, I had some problems using the import feature from a MGMT box.

    Server Name -> Import Updates -> search KB -> Add -> Import -> Done.

  • Hi Daniel,

    same problem here. It is the IE which should import the KB4073290 into WSUS.

    A friend of mine disabled the virusscanner and it worked. But here it does not work even if i have uninstalled the scanner.

    Maybe you have another idea ?

  • Hi Henere,

    I was able to import the update into WSUS on 2008R2 & 2012R2, however I get the same error on 2016. Will conduct further testing and report back soon.

  • Hi everyone,

    turns out that importing updates on Server 2016 (WSUS 10.0.14393.1914) generally doesn't work. The only updates I can import are for Windows 7 an older OS. Has never been noticed so far because I never use the import feature.

    It does work on 2008R2 / 2012R2 WSUS


    Regards

  • Hi everyone,

    just to let you know, a statement from the WSUS Product Team has been published: WSUS Catalog import failures

    "We are aware of the issue and presently working on a fix. In the meantime, the following workarounds can be used to unblock your deployment:

    After clicking on the “Import Updates…” option in the WSUS console, an Internet Explorer window will open on the following URL: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/... &Protocol=1.20
    Before proceeding with importing the updates, change the “1.20” protocol value in the URL to the previous protocol value “1.8”. The URL should look like this when you’re done: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/... &Protocol=1.8


    Regards

    Daniel

  • I had the same issue with WSUS on Server 2012 R2.

    What I had to do (note - I had the plugin installed already, so you may need to install this as part of the process):

    - in IE, under Security tab, turn off "Enable Protected Mode". Close IE.

    - click Import Updates as usual

    - find the updates in the Catalog & add to basket

    - turn off "Require server verification" under Trusted Sites & added the http catalog URL to the Trusted Sites.

    - click Import Updates in WSUS again.

    - this should open a new tab in IE. The basket should have the updates in it and you should now have the option to Import.
