Hi, @BoopathiSubramaniam-6294
Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

Are you deploying the SUG(Software Update Group) manually every month?
If so, you can remove any SUG packages and create new SUG with all required software update.

Why not use ADR to deploy software updates automatically and only use one SUG package with one ADR.
Here is a great article about ADR for your reference:

It seems there is no update for a couple of days. May we know the current status of the problem? Is there any other assistance we can provide?

Hello AllenLiu,
Below are the Software Update Group.
Each software update group contains Deployment Package. Which of the Software Update group Deployment Package can be deleted?
So that each Distribution Point will get more disk free space

This is depend on the specific updates in each SUG, you may check the members of each SUG, if the updates are replaced or expired, we should delete the SUG.
If the updates are still available, and if the collection you deployed is a dynamic collection and new device will continue to be added to this collection, you can keep these SUG.
