what is wsus cabinate file?

From Wikipedia:  "Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), previously known as Software Update Services (SUS), is a computer program developed by Microsoft Corporation that enables administrators to manage the distribution of updates and hotfixes released for Microsoft products to computers in a corporate environment."

A WSUS cabinet file is a file used by Microsoft to distribute software updates.

what is the user of this?

Cabinet files are downloaded from Microsoft and hosted by the WSUS subsystem on a Windows server.  The WSUS administrator selects which updates are made available to local client systems.

how can I download the Wsus cabinate file for the July month

There is no one single file containing all updates for a particular month for all products.  (Emergency updates would be impossible if an update had to wait until a next month release.)  If you suspect that updates are missing or were not sent, you can use the WSUS Administration Console to check update status -- see Microsoft's introduction to this topic.
