SCCM 2012 not pulling Windows 2012 WSUS updates

Last Modified: 2016-02-13
Recently, I have added both Windows 2012 and Windows 2012 R2 into our existing Automatic Deployment rules in SCCM however, if I right click All Software Updates and run Synchronize Software Updates and monitor wsyncmgr.log file the requested categories are not listing Windows 2012 or Windows 2012 R2. See here: Sync.JPG
Also when I open Windows Server Update Services on the SCCM server and select Products and Classifications Windows 2012 and Windows 2012 R2 is not selected.
But if I select these categories and then run Synchronize Software Updates from SCCM... when I check Windows Server Update Services Windows 2012 and Windows 2012 R2 Products and Classifications are unticked again!
I really need our SCCM to download product critical, definition and security updates for Windows 2012 and Windows 2012R2! Please help, it's driving me crazy!
