Azure VM patch manual update stuck in progress. How can it be cancelled?

sac16 50 Reputation points

I have a one-time update that was initiated against a VM. The maintenance window was left at the default (235 minutes). However, it has been running for over 24 hours and still says it is 'InProgress' with no updates. There does not appear to be an option to cancel it in the Azure Update Manager | History panel. How can this be cancelled?

    sac16, Apologies for the delayed response.

    I heard back from the team and the past run status in history cannot be updated. The date in Azure is not updated for Update Manager after it has been pushed there. The InProgress result will age out according to the table’s retention policy (7 days for assessment and 30 days for installation).
