    Hi @Boopathi Subramaniam ,

    Did you try to delete the Registry.pol file and restart after the SMS Host Agent service (ccmexec)?

    Hi, @Boopathi Subramaniam
    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Even the Registry.pol is the current date, you may also try to delete it and re-generate it.
    The steps:

    1. On the client computer, go to C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine.
    2. Backup the Registry.pol file or delete it.
    3. Restart the SMS agent host service.
    4. Re-run the Software Updates Scan Cycle in the Configuration Manager Actions tab.
