do you have some GPO created for WSUS?
is this GPO applied on computers? maybe you did some change and it is not, or GPO values are not up to date?

Hi,

1. run the RSOP.MSC on effected system and see if WSUS policies are applied.
(expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Windows Components, and then click Windows Update and see policies)

2 .if policies are applied then go to c:\windows and check windowsupdate.log.
