Software Updates Deployment Package "Is Deployed" - "No"

There is a Software Updates Deployment Package in Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. Every month I add new updates to this package and create a deployment on the collection of computers. I have revealed that despite the fact that in the Deployment Package are many updates only last-month updates are deploying during the current deployment. Others never install even if they are missing on new computers. Their status in Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager "Is Deployed" - "No", "Downloaded" - "Yes" All these updates with status "Is Deployed" - "No" were actually downloaded and deployed earlier this year. Maybe my mistake is that I delete old deployments when I create a new one. I'm confused, because I think that if there are all the updates in the Deployment Package they will be deployed and installed with a new deployment. Am I wrong?

    Adding updates to an update (aka deployment) package does not in any way deploy them and is completely unrelated to whether or not they are deployed as update packages are not deployable.

    You have two choices for deploying updates in ConfigMgr: You either deploy the update(s) individually and directly or you add them to an update group and deploy the update group.

    Update groups are not the same as update packages. Update groups group updates for deployment and reporting purposes. Update packages are containers for update content, i.e., the actual files for the updates so that the clients can download the files when needed from a DP.

    Is there a reason you aren't using ADRs? ADRs will do everything for you based on rules that you configure.

    Hi, @VitalyK-4619
    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.
    When you say "add new updates to this package and create a deployment on the collection of computers", I think you create the new SUG and select the old package "Office2016x64", and you have deleted some old SUG deployment, so the updates in old SUG still show in the package but the deployment is deleted.
    Like Jason suggested, you may use a ADR to automatic this.
