Windows server 2012 r2 updates failed. "Security only quality update" for several months



We have around 5 servers that have failed to install windows updates that are specific to "Security Only Quality Update for Windows Server 2012 R2 for x64-based Systems." This issue is dating back to the beginning of 2019 and all monthly updates afterwards cannot apply without the prerequisite.


Is this a known issue? Could someone please help supply troubleshooting steps? All other updates work without issue and other servers with the same specs and network settings can apply these updates.


I have attached a screenshot to show you what the update history looks like on one of our systems.


Thank you,
