Wsus not updating a workstation
This will re-populate the “Software Distribution” folder, after which you can re-issue the two update commands and the client should now report correctly to the WSUS Console.
I'm not sure this is the right forum to post this, but I give it a go.
I have set the 1903 feature update to install to a test computer group.
The update downloads OK and if I log in it says: 'We're all set for the restart you scheduled at......' (see screenshots) each workstation seems to have a different date and time, despite being all turned on at the same time and identical settings, and the update/restart only seems to apply if I manually select 'restart now' in Windows Update I have a number of Windows Update GPO settings, something must be missing.
24 hours after you approve the updates, you can use the WSUS Reports feature to determine whether the updates were deployed to the test group computers.

The downloads happen based on the clients' Windows Update settings.If the detection worked and the computer is communicating with WSUS, then (in Windows 7 anyway) Windows Update will say something like "You receive updates: Managed by your system administrator" (if you didn't lock it down totally via GPO, you will also have the option "Check online for updates from Microsoft Update").
