offline Package for windows updates

Is there a way I can create a package of all security updates for windows server 2012 r2 and deploy it manually. I am not comfortable deploying updates using sccm on the severs and want to create a sort of an offline package of the downloaded updates and copy it to the server and run it manually as one msi.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I am not sure about one single MSI, but you can use WSUS Offline to update. I have used this on occasion and it works for me.

No wsus is not the option I am looking for. ok if I download the latest rollup update and install it manually on all the servers, will it cover the updates and rollups released earlier

To your second question, WSUS Offline is kept up to date and should cover updates and rollups.

Also, many of us here are comfortable updating our servers online. That does work very well.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

"No wsus is not the option I am looking for" - "wsus offline" is not WSUS, but something completely different. It should suit you.

To dispel any misconceptions, WSUSOffline does not keep itself up to date.  One has to run the UpdateGenerator periodically to actually get the updates.

If you get the latest FULL rollup yes it does cover OS specific updates, there also is a delta rollup that only covers from the previous full update.
On a server there are also other items that need updating ie. .net frameworks, microsoft applications, defender updates.

True about WSUS Offline. I just download it whenever I need it.

But still, updating from Internet is used by most of us and is best.

It's good that went with wsusoffline, but why would you only give credit to one comment and exclude the original suggestion to use WSUSoffline (John's)?
