Windows server 2012. Updates have failed status. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have installed windows updates but a bunch of them have failed some installed correctly and some have failed status.

    Starting with the update detailed below. After that some updates installed correctly and some failed.

    When I downloaded the package and manually installed I got a message to say it was already installed and it shows under the installed updates. How can I fix? How do I know if the updates are installed or not? How can I fix.

    I have run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth and it says no corruption found

    Thanks for the help. By the eay brand new server just out of the box.
