It could be, that you simply miss the registry settings that signalize AV software compliance. Check the presence of
Key="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" Subkey="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\QualityCompat" Value="cadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc" Type="REG_DWORD”

 If your AV updated with the patch compatibility then you will able to see the registry key.

fyi.. I have updated latest SEP antivirus definition file and restarted the server and it got work, windows patches appeared again
What you forget about: updating AV does what? It sets that registry key I mentioned. Really, that is documented behavior, so I will object.
