when can I expect to see an update appear as available on windows update and WSUS? MS released cumulative update KB4458469 on September 20, I check for updates from a computer and it finds nothing , my WSUS syncs everyday but it's not there but the update is available in the windows update catalogue and installs manually just fine.

Do they delay the release to windows update and wsus?

Thanks

Some CUs that are not security relevant simply don't sync with WSUS. You will need to import them manually.

seems like a major required update?

It's normal as well that it does not appear there. Only security updates will be pushed out monthly. These in-between-months quality updates are sometimes not offered. Since these fixes will be included in the next CU (security update of october), you don't need to worry - you get them then.

Correct. You can, as said, import that update to wsus and approve it at any time sooner, manually.
