I have a Server 2016 (not using WSUS) that is simply refusing to download updates.
I've deleted the softwaredistribution folder multiple times and nothing has helped.
At one point it briefly showed me the available updates it was going to download before going straight to the "Download updates 0%" message again, where it has been sitting for hours.
I've tried everything I could think of but nothing helps. Sadly there isn't a WU troubleshooter for Server 2016 like there is for Windows 10.
Any thoughts/scripts anyone may have?
There are no errors at all, it just doesn't download anything and just sits there...
It recreates the softwaredistribution folder every time to about 503 MB then does nothing. It has enough space, so that's not the issue either.
