WSUS Approvals Not Installed

Hi Experts

I have set up an working WSUS schedule and got my updates downloading to my WSUS server and my clients connecting, downloading and installing the updates as expected.

However, when I check the computer group they are showing that there are 5 updates still to be installed, therefore I am seeing the yellow exclamation mark icon.

I have checked the clients, which are mainly Windows 10 machines, with a few Windows 8.1 as well, and they all say they are up to date.  

The updates are:
KB4016509 - English and Portuguese Laguage packs
KB3061064 - Update rollup for Skype for Business Server 2015 SmartSetup

I have only approved English Language packs to be downloaded.  Although I think the US language pack feature may be configured on the clients.

Is there any way of telling WSUS to ignore these particular updates.  Really need to get my Green Ticks in place !!!

Just an update on my question.

Regarding KB3061064 - I realised when I re-read the report that this related to a Skype for Business server update so I just declined it and it disappeared from the Updates not installed summary.

Just need to figure out why the language updates are not installing now.

Go to Options -> Update Files and Languages and tick all required languages.

Otherwise decline them and wait for another update.

Hi There Hello There

Thanks for your reply, this is the problem.  I have already checked in Update Files and Langueages and I only have English language ticked, so why would WSUS be reporting that a Portuguese language update is required.

Acronis True Image 2019 just released!

It seems like KB4016509 doesn't exist anymore...

Can you please post here WindowsUpdate.log?

If you do not want to install that update, just decline it. It's up to you.

WSUS is a repository from which Language Packs can be obtained. Updates are installed only when a user on client chooses to do so.
