Windows Server 2012 checking for updates forever

Hi Guys,

i have a Windows server 2012 is having updating issue. when i click on "Check for updates" it will check for update forever...
there is a patch management tool installed on another server, and all the PCs and servers in the domain are getting updates from the Update server (not WSUS)...

so far i have tried:

click on "Check online for updates from Microsoft Update", still checking forever...
deleting registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU then reboot, no difference.
deleting %systemroot%\System32\Catroot2 and %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution folder contents, then reboot. no difference.

ran sfc /scannow all corruptions fixed today, i will reboot and try again tonight...

any suggestion to this problem?
Windows Server 2012* Windows Updates
