Hi,
I have deployed WSUS in my network year ago, I see that in a year his version has not changed:
Update Services

Microsoft Corporation

Version: 10.0.17763.1
My WSUS is updating from Microsoft Online not from itself.
I install all updates from microsoft but the WSUS version does not change, should I download and install any service packs/updates for WSUS manually?

Windows Server
Windows Server
A family of Microsoft server operating systems that support enterprise-level management, data storage, applications, and communications.

    The version you're looking at is likely the one at the Help> About window which on Server 2022 comes up as

    Microsoft Corporation
    Version: 10.0.20348.1

    Don't worry about this - I believe this only changes when you install/upgrade to a different server version.

    If you look at the Computers>All Computers > [WSUS server] > Version column, this column represents the Windows Update Agent version installed on the WSUS server.

    @Tutek
    Thanks for your posting on Q&A.

    The OS version of your WSUS server is Windows Server 2019. Am I right?

    should I download and install any service packs/updates for WSUS manually?

    I don't found any Official Document for reference to update the Windows Update Agent in windows 10(Server 2016 & 2019). Also there is no need to update the WUA either.

    should I download and install any service packs/updates for WSUS manually?

    I agree with @Adam J. Marshall . Please try to install the latest Cumulative updates for the server and it will be OK. The Server will keep up to date.

    Hope the above will be helpful.

    Best regards,
    Rita
