WSUS - weird update from 2016 appeared on the servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    This month for some unknown reason wsus the following updates to our servers. The last one is dated back in 2016...

    KB4556798
    KB4556401
    KB4556846
    KB4556853
    KB4556405
    KB3172729

    I tried to a vm to install them all. What happened? The vm normally restarted, it showed a message saying something 'reverting back updates' and when i logged on all the updates were there to be installed.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi George,

    Regards of the day. Thanks for your posting.

    Please consider checking which updates you mentioned above have been installed by the client. Please refer to the following picture to check:


    Here is a link about KB4556798 update for your reference:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4556798/cumulative-security-update-for-internet-explorer

    Please note that if you install KB4556798(Cumulative Security Update) in your client, there is no need to install KB4556846(Security Monthly Quality Rollup) and KB4556405(Security Only Update). There's an alternative relationship between them.

    If you have any updates about this issue, please keep us in touch.

  • Hello Rita,

    What i did so far:

    i temporary hide the update KB3172729 dated from 2016.

    Then i select all the updates and installed them. This is a picture from windows updates of the server

    Then i closed control panel. I opened it again , and went directly to windows updates... guess what:
