Hello,

Windows Server 2016 patching is taking a long time. Any progress since 2017 when the issue was already posted?
Yesterday for 2 patches it took 90 minutes, it is essentially the Windows Server 2016 cumulative which is taking for ever to be processed.

Thanks,
Dom

    @Duchemin, Dominique
    Hi,

    Sorry for the inconvenience, we found that many people have reported the same issue.

    So far, there is no particularly good way to improve.

    I will submit this case to Microsoft via our channel.
    You can use the Feedback Hub app to share your problem.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hope above information can help you.
