I know this update was pulled. Anyone know how to remove it from a server as a pending update?

I have looked for this file: C:\windows\winsxs\pending.xml and it's not there. I have also stopped Windows Updates and BITS and removed the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder. Still no luck.

    Hello @TylerB1985

    Move to an admin cmd and run:

    dism /online /get-packages /format:table

    look for the update, it should show as "Install Pending"

    Copy the package name and type:

    dism /online /remove-package /packagename:NameOfPackage

    Let me know the results,

    Juan S

    Hi,
    Resetting the catroot2 folder is basically known to fix many Windows Update problems.

    Catroot and catroot2 are actually the Windows operating system folders required for Windows Update.

    When you run Windows Update, the folder catroot2 stores the signatures of the Windows Update package and also helps to install it. The Cryptographic Service actually uses the % windir% System32catroot2edb.log file for the update process. Updates are stored in the SoftwareDistribution folder, which is then used by Automatic Updates to perform the update.

    Do not delete or rename the Catroot folder. The Catroot2 folder is recreated automatically by Windows. However, the Catroot folder is not recreated if it is renamed.
