WSUS server does not display new updates after installing Patch Manager

Overview

After you install Patch Manager and navigate to Enterprise > Update Services < <your_WSUS_server> and select All Updates, the All Updates window does not display any updates. 

Environment

All Patch Manager versions

Cause

During the installation, Patch Manager does update or modify the WSUS settings. As a result, the WSUS server does not synchronize with the Microsoft Update site and no updates are available for publishing.

  4. Select a product in the Products tab.
  5. Click the Classifications tab.
  6. Select the required classification, and click OK.
  7. Click Yes to run the task. 
    The Task Progress window displays the download process.
  8. Click Close to close the window.
    Patch Manager updates the Update Events tab in the WSUS server window. 
  9. Click Synchronize Server in the Actions pane. 
  10. Complete the Task Options Wizard, and then click Finish.
