  • Hi yaskdesk,

    1. We may test if download the update from Internet could be installed manually on the clients;

    2. We may also clear SoftwareDistribution folder on client and download the updates from WSUS again, check the result; 

    3. Run sfc /scannow on the clients to check if there are corrupted or missing system files;

    4. If the above suggestions not work and the issue is that clients could download updates from WSUS server while unable to install the updates, we may check the CBS log and turn to Windows Client forum to troubleshoot deeply for the win7 clients;


    Best Regards,
