Hello. We are running WSUS on Windows Server 2019. Not config manager. It's been working well for a good line time for approving security updates on our Windows 10 LSTC systems. I've begun investigating the options for approving the Windows 11 upgrade using WSUS and am running into some issues.

First, it appears that WSUS by default is offering a pre-release build of Windows 11. Anyone know what is up with that? Second, even though it is approved and the test Windows 10 client sees the available update, it fails to download. We don't cache any updates on the WSUS server, all clients are sent to the internet for download. See screenshots for more info.

    The error likely has to do with UUP

    I'm not sure why it would need it as you're not downloading the update from WSUS, but it would be a good thing to check to see if that resolves the error.

    05D = May Update, D release - or preview release in week 4 of the month.

    24H2 = Insider Build as it's not GA - does that computer have Windows Insider enabled?

    You should have 23H2-05B available to approve instead.
