I've had a Windows Server 2019 VM refuse to install updates for quite a while now. Since today's patch Tuesday, figured I'd try to dig a little more into it since I'm going to be looking at that machine again sooner or later.
MS has made it clear for a while now that, with Cumulative Updates, you can take a brand new OS install, and immediately bring everything up to date just by installing the latest available Cumulative Update. Since this particular VM refuses to install the latest CU for Server 2019 (KB4522355, which came out October 24th) directly from my WSUS server, I figured I'd download the offline installer, and run that locally (more often than not this solves this type of problem).
Nope, "this update is not applicable to your computer". Tried many things, no change.
On a hunch, I tracked down the CU prior to that one--from October 8th (KB4519338). That one didn't complain, and is now in the process of being installed (as I'm writing this).
If these CUs are truly "cumulative", why does the newer one insist it's not applicable...? Windows Update itself insisted I needed it...
Does anyone else find it to be a pita to get pestered by the annoying system modal 'Updates are Available' screen where the only option is to 'View Available Updates'! Where is my 'Ignore Again' option?
From what I have heard, the first test screenings did not go well at all and they already have rewritten, partially reshot and recut the whole thing. Twice. And they still are not happy with the result. If only half of that is true, the fans will tar and feather them and then chase them out of the town.
As I said: This is getting far more amusing than any movie they could possibly make.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
