Wsus server not updating itself
From Update Files and Languages, make sure that you don’t have Express installation files selected. Many people might argue that is unnecessary to run the reset command, simply because all updates will be re-downloaded.
Let’s clean up WSUS by running the following commands: Take a look in Task Manager and you’ll see that the process “SQL Server Windows NT – 64 bit” is consuming all the CPU. Get Updates($updatescope ) foreach ($u1 in $u ) write-host Total Declined Updates: $count trap # EOF Open Power Shell ISE as Administrator and run the script. Well, you could always search and decline all updates you don’t want and then run the Server Cleanup Wizard, but its PITA.
This is not a for central driver deployment and management. Not every driver update you see in Windows Update is available to load in WSUS, and some drivers will just not install properly.
This is expected; Unfortunately Microsoft does not really test this kind of scenario when certifying drivers.
Use a test group before approving each update on your server.

In essence, the upgrades affect the entire OS build – not the individual components that normal updates apply to.
The first major update, Windows 10 1511, will be released to WSUS within two weeks.
Before you start make sure to disable your Automatic Approval Rule(s).Some manufacturers have special update tools you can leverage, but they eventually abandon updating them, and require their own special administration by IT. Unfortunately, the most backwards and arcane part of WSUS is drivers. The problem is that driver packages can support tens or hundreds of different device variants across many Windows versions. Some of this is architectural limitation, some of this is because you can't approve updates per OS version. You're probably asking, "Okay, so I found the drivers to import.But, you've probably noticed that if you check Windows Update on a consumer machine, Microsoft provides certain kinds of driver updates. You probably saw the Classification during WSUS configuration. But if all I see is the driver name when I update computers from Windows Update, how do I know which driver to import?The secret is, you can search Microsoft Update Catalog for those Update ID's. For each Update ID you've found, copy and paste it, without brackets, into the search field, and hit Enter.You can then add each update to your basket, and import them into WSUS.
