Cause

This is due to a missing entry in 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot\autoupdate�\dictionaries\settings.txt' for CabPoolPath, which should be followed by location to the contents cab folder.

Resolution

The CabPoolPath section should contain the path to the downloaded patches (i.e. <Installation Drive>:\SUS\content\cabs)

For Instance;
CabPoolPath, C:\SUS\content\cab�s
