Windows Update error in Azure virtual machine

Pablo Marzullo 5 Reputation points

Hi, I have an azure vm with Windows Server 2016 Datacenter and it is not managing to install a Windows Update. The error message is: 2023-08 Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2016 for x64-based Systems (KB5029242)

This is the first time something from Windows Update has failed to install.

Can you help me see what could be the problem?

    Hi, @Pablo Marzullo

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    We didn't see the error message, it's just a title of update.

    By the way, have we tried to restart the machine and reinstall the update?
