Windows Server 2016 status is up to date but the last update is from February RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a very strange situation with my Windows Server 2016.

    When I do "Check for updates", the answer is "Your device is up to date".

    But the last installed update is the security update from February.

    Source      Description      HotFixID      InstalledBy          InstalledOn
    ------      -----------      --------      -----------          -----------
    SRV1845     Update           KB3192137     NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM  9/13/2016 12:00:00 AM
    SRV1845     Update           KB4035631     NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM  9/7/2017 12:00:00 AM
    SRV1845     Update           KB4049065     NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM  11/26/2017 12:00:00 AM
    SRV1845     Security Update  KB4074590     NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM  2/25/2018 12:00:00 AM


    So why does it show "Your device is up to date" ?

    I approved several Windows Server 2016 updates since February on WSUS...The OS version is 1607, build 14393.2068

  • Hello HL159159,

     

    Glad to help, and hope my reply useful.

     

    At first, it would be very helpful if you could provide some details.

     

    • Is this issue happened in a server or in some severs?
    • Have your sever clients reported they status correctly?

     

    Windows server 2016 update history is listed in following link.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4000825/windows-10-windows-server-2016-update-history

     

    Comparing with the list above, you could check in WSUS if the appropriate updates are approved. You also could install the subsequent update manually, and check if it works.

     

    Look forward to your feedback.

     

    Best regards,

    Ray jia

  • Hi HL159159,
     
    Thanks for your information.

    At first, you can try to download the updates manually to check if it works.

    Besides, in order to solve problem, I find the last updates of the server 2016 is KB4284833. The microsoft official document said that "Prerequisite: The servicing stack update (SSU) (KB4132216) must be installed before installing the latest cumulative update (LCU) (KB4284880). The LCU will not be reported as applicable until the SSU is installed."
    Therefore, we should install SSU (KB4132216) firstly, and then try to install the update KB4284833.
     
    For future information:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4284833/windows-10-update-kb4284833

    Hope this helps and if there is any question, feel free to contact me.

    Best regards,
    Johnson

  • I've been seeing lots of problems with Server 2016 as well. Deleting the update cache works about half the time when I've seen detection errors.

    1. Stop the Windows Update service
    2. Delete or rename the "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution" folder
    3. Check for updates

    It's safe to delete/rename the folder, as it'll recreate itself next time you run updates. The only thing you lose is update history.

  • Hi HL159159,

    WWood gives a good way to free up the drive space. SoftwareDistribution contains some installation packages that have been downloaded before, some logs have historical records, etc.

    There are some tips to free up drive space on the server:

    Hope it helps.
