Reset Windows Server 2016 Update

Which is a way to reset the Windows Server 2016 updates? I used the GWX Control Panel. But it still shows a bunch of failed updates in the list.

I have GWX Control Panel, but I do not think I would use it on a server. It is a workstation tool.

GWX tool was to prevent Windows 10 Upgrade.

Access is denied even though the rest of it worked, yes I was in Admin mode


David Johnson - that is correct, you are right. There is an option to reset your Windows Update folders which I use this tool for as well. Not just for denying Win10.
