I would definitely look into patching the SQL Server Engine, SQL Agent and SSMS that you're using to view the history. As side note and before patching could you try the command below see if the history is actually there after the job finished?
USE msdb ; 

EXEC dbo.sp_help_jobhistory  @job_name = N'YourJobNameHere' ; 

Open in new window

If I run the job I see this error in error detail:


An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)

Your question was "MS SQL 2019 SQL job, after finished, never update the job history" and I suggested to apply the patches and have you done that?

only 1 x SQL server out of 4 of the same patch level has this problem, so it is not about the SQL server patches, right?
What you asked above seems to be totally unrelated to your original question and not clear if this error was always there OR showing now in the Job History after you patched the server.

then error is found if I run the job manually, so can be a good hints.

and if I run the scrip inside the job individually, it is ok.


we finished applying latest patch,it fixed that. SQL serve patch/cU quiet stable actually !
