Windows Server 2016 can't update ( NOT using WSUS ) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 3 windows Server 2016 std and data-center which we can't update. Not using WSUS

    We receive the following error:

    We couldn't connect to the update service.

    We'll try again later, or you can check now. If it still doesn't work, make sure you're connected to the Internet.

    After running the trouble shooter, i received the following message:

    Potential Windows Update Database error detected:  Not Fixed!

    Best regards,

    Kareem

  • Hi el.Kareem,

    1. On the Server 2016, please run sfc /scannow to check if there are corrupted or missing system files;

    2. Check if you could install the latest monthly rollup manually on Server 2016:

    If the monthly rollup could be installed successfully, check if the issue will be resolved after then.

    Best Regards,

    Anne
