WSUS error / failed upgrade

A few months ago a file server running Win2008R2SP1 was upgraded from IE9 to IE11. The upgrade failed, and IE11 was uninstalled and reverted to IE9. Since that failed attempt WSUS shows the server with the error installing IE11.
Is it any way to fix the error without upgrading to IE11?
Thank you.

Then you will have to perform an In-Place Upgrade on Windows Server 2008:
