Unable to update Windows Server 2012 from the Windows Update option as I get the error code 80072efe.

What I have tried:

Unable to update Windows Server 2012 from the Windows Update option as I get the error code 80072efe. Which is affecting the Visual Studio 2012 ultimate installation. As the system os is not up-to-date, Visual Studio is getting error. I have downloaded the ISO for Windows Server 2012 from my.visualstudio.com as I have an msdn subscription. The exe/dvd setup for Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate also from here. I have added couple of updates which I downloaded from Windows update catalog site but still not success. The date on the update MSU was 18/08/2018

This is a coding forum - shouldn't you be contacting Microsoft about this issue? Especially as you have an MSDN subscription!

If you just configured the server and getting this error while you try to update Windows. For solving this we need to download and install the latest monthly rollup and security release from Microsoft Update Catalog website. Install the updates and required files mentioned in that rollup page. After the installation and restart, retry the windows update option and that should work. I installed the January 2021 rollup for fixing this. Thanks to OriginalGriff and CHill60 for the quick response.
