I keep getting the above error and I don't know what its saying? I have a schedule to install Office 365 updates on a single computer.

  • Just a little more info, it gets all the way to the point where it sends the notify to the user but never deploys.
  • Looks like you are right, looking at the processes it has the update.exe but is not doing anything, it seems to be stuck on deploy status.

review your patch settings.

The "error message" says what it is: there is a patching task scheduled and the new task will just canceled since the old task is not yet finished.
