The best solution to update thurd party like adobe reader, flash player... in SCCM is SCUB (System Certer Update Publisher) .

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/sus/2014/12/10/how-to-install-and-configure-system-center-updates-publisher/

Or you can use the technique "(Uninstall /install)"

I think Ben's keyboard is playing up....if you're Googling, you will need to search for SCUP.

And yes, for 3rd party, non MS apps you need a 3rd party add-on. SCPU is a no extra cost option, PatchmyPC is a cheap extension that does a very similar thing but there's also Shavlik Protect and Solarwinds Patch Manager both at extra costs.

Hi,

You can install on the same server, yes. Not sure what that error means.

You need to far, far, far more info than "it gives an error". Please provide logs, error codes and full details as you can.

Both screenshots say "user profile cannot be loaded". What account are you logged on with to create the update groups? I've never seen that happen.

Never ever use the admin account for that. You can use a standard user account to do pretty much everything in CM. The account needs to be given permissions *within* CM itself, because it uses Role Based Access.

Beginners:
https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2011/09/23/introducing-role-based-administration-in-system-center-2012-configuration-manager/

TechNet
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt592917.aspx

Read up on all that when you have time; but *make* time if you can't. It will protect your investment in CM. The last thing you want is someone untrained loose and deploying W7 OS to your servers. It happened. In a bank, in Australia.

As for your patch deployment, just step through the basics from scratch with a new account.

Prajwal has lots of great walkthroughs; many are available to print off in PDF format from TechNet gallery

There's plenty of detail to resolve this between the two answers.
