The issue:

I am very new to IT and encountered an obstacle in updating Windows Server 2016 Standard to a version that supports the Azure signing code feature.

Error facing:

The error "This update is not applicable to your PC" appears when I try to install the MSU file KB5006669.

Tried methods to resolve:

I tried running the sfc /scannow command, but it found no errors. I also tried running the DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command, but it also found no errors.
