Office 2016 Deployment Customization

I am making Office 2016 "available" to all the users via SCCM. The main problem is that I would like to add MS Publisher to this particular setup. I already have customized the installed using MS Office Customization tool and enabled publisher in it. Also, I have done the update content on the package. But when I run the installer, does not installs publisher and exits the setup saying the MS-Office 2016 is already installed (as MS-Office 2016 is already installed on user computer). Summarizing, would like to add just the Publisher so that users can install MS-Publisher, when required.

Regards,

If you have Office 2016 PROFESSIONAL, Publisher should be included.  which 'flavor' of 2016 do you have?

We are using Office 2016 professional (32 Bit). I have tried creating a package only with Publisher but the result is the same.
