WSUS update approval RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When I want to approve declined updates, so I get the error. Or really do not approve declined updates again? 

    Error mesage: The selected update has expired and cannot be approved for installation. It is recommended you decline this update.

    Thank you

    The issue is exactly what the message says. The update is *EXPIRED* and *CANNOT* be approved.

  • Hi Madaran,

    As Lawrence has mentioned above, this message means that this update is expired by Microsoft.

    Expired software updates were previously deployable to client computers, but once a software update is expired, new deployments can no longer be created for the updates. Existing deployments that contain an expired update continues to work.

    Best Regards.

    I think on the contrary, if it is not that WSUS must re-download the update. Therefore, the message seems to me absurd... It was enough to try it the other day and now it works.  So..?

    The update is EXPIRED!

    Do you understand what an EXPIRED update is?

    Expired Updates

    An expired update is an update that has been invalidated by Microsoft. An expired update can also be an update that has been superseded by the release of another update (new or revised) that fixes or enhances functionality or applicability offered by the expiring update. In this case, the superseding update should be approved in place of the expired update. An update that is expired can no longer be approved for detection or installation.

  • The update most likely got superseeded by a newer one. You do not need to approve this one.
