  • Windows Updates installation problem

    hello people,

    I have a WSUS setup running on windows server 2003 with approx 40 computers.

    there is one machine however(my machine) that have problems installing some updates that were approved earlier.

    It's the only machine as i haven't seen any other machine with that problem.

    All machines are in the domain.

    I had tries manually installing the said updates but i get the following error

    "There are no products affected by this package installed on this system"

    Please guide me on how to solve this

    See attached screenshot for the updates with errors

    I would go with the exact message - do you have Office 2010, Security Essentials and .NET4.5 on your own machine?

      yes i do have.

      I have also noticed that more computers are returning the same error..."updates with error"

      I dont know why this could be happening.This means some specific updates are not installing.

      see the attached screenshot...

        When you click the failed link you should see an error code. Have you looked this up?

          Windows update - Error Codes: 80070659 & 659 (Can't install updates)

          I have searched for this but i don't seem to solve the problem fully.

              thanks for the thread blood.

              i did follow the instructions therein and it worked.the updates that were failing to install got install successfully.

              However,it's still a mystery how that happens

                Yeah - sometimes you wonder if they have a mind of their own

                Glad you got it fixed
