Windows Module Installer must be updated before you can install this package.

Hello guys,



I am having an issue with installing 2020 Security & Monthly Rollup patches for the months of March-December.

January and February seemed to have installed fine, but every month after seems to need a WMI update. Considering January 2020 was the last month before Windows 7 EOL (End Of Life), I will assume that there is something additional I would need to install in order for the other patches to successfully install. I do have an ESU license activated and installed on the system - yet this still does not fix the issue.

These are the only KB's that will install:

4534310, 4534314, 4537820, 4539601.

Note : The system I am working on is an air-gapped system. Which means there will be no automatic updates. Each KB has to be installed manually.

Hoping someone can provide a remedy or point me into the right direction of one. Cheers!

What is the current patch level? Has system health been verified? I'd verify system and servicing health by running;
sfc /scannow

also system update readiness tool
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-server/deployment/fix-windows-update-errors#resolution-for-windows-7-service-pack-1-sp1-and-windows-server-2008-r2-sp1

Then check for errors in;
%SYSTEMROOT%\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log

Hello @ForceOPSEC-1629

Do you have latest SSU installed? Please check if: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4592510/servicing-stack-update is installed.

Hi,
This problem occurs because the installation requires a new version of the Windows Modules Installer or the servicing stack.
Download the update from the Microsoft Download Center:

Hope above information can help you.
