WSUS does not detect. The wsus server is passive, the clients do detection and reporting and downloading. So nothing pulled, all pushed. You can use /reportnow at the client if you want to force reporting.

Please consult windowsupdate.log at the server that needs to be patched.

You can try to run WSUSOffline updater on the affected computer to see if it can update well and thus fix the issue.

Still, I need to correct my wording: Nothing pushed, all pulled. :)
