With WSUS we can configure all of our servers to be automatically updated, ensuring that security updates are installed quickly from a central location.
This will provide us with useful information such as reports advising which servers have or have not been patched with a specific update.
I purchased a bigger 2nd hard disk for storage (my OS is on an SSD), so I decided I'd just test the waters for a few weeks without worry, then conduct a clean install of 8.1 and reinstall everything where it should be.
The test installation/s originally encountered a hitch whereby Windows 8.1 would not update. So, a few weeks later, I decided to go ahead with the same process for my proper clean install once I'd learnt everything I needed to know during these few weeks of tinkering.

Important Updates; And optional; I selected them all (except Silverlight as i think that shouldn’t be on a server anyway), installed it and press reboot.; So nothing new here, all of us do this regularly i suppose.
I tried it at a different site in another datacenter and the same happened, although without the 6008 event (i recorded a video aswell, but that takes time to post).
I also found a event 6008 (unexpected reboot), so i figured something went wrong.
So i reverted to the previous checkpoint and tried it again, but with the same result.
From the Complete WSUS Installation window, we will select that we wish to store our updates locally in the folder specified.
Quick note: WSUS was uninstalled for troubleshooting purposes sometime ago.
