    Have you tried using the name 'localhost' as your server name?

  • Hi Arun,

    Do you connect to a remote WSUS server? If yes, then, check if you can open the WSUS console locally?

    If you can't open WSUS console locally, please check if your WSUS server installed KB3159706, this update need to do manual steps to finish the installation:

    Best Regards,

    Could you try running the postinstall task:

    C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools\WsusUtil.exe postinstall /servicing
