Are there known issues with Windows Update on Server 2016?

Recommended Posts

I want to say it started happening late last year but Windows Update will fail more than half the time.  It's also incredibly slow in comparison to Windows 10.  Is this a known issue?   Is it better to download the update manually and install instead when I see a new cumulative update?

Stop the windows update service and bits.  


Delete everything in the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder


Restart windows update service and bits, run windows update again.
