Windows not updating xp

We have a WSUS server running on Windows Server 2016.WSUS detects and sends updates to all systems, including the 2012 servers.Every other OS works fine, it is only the 2016 servers that have this problem.

It shows 0 updates needed, all updates show "installed or not applicable".As much as I don't want to, I am going to have to call Microsoft...If you scan the web you'll see all the things @Redwizard000 tried being suggested so I'd say @Redwizard000 tried really hard to solve this one.Since they have been installed they have gotten 0 updates.I have a hard time believing that there are 0 applicable updates for a fresh Windows Server 2016 install.So, when it tries Installation failed The update could not be found.Either the update is not applicable to this computer or the update no longer exists.Does anyone have any idea what might be causing the problem and how to fix it? I even tried installing 2019 server (though I don't think there are any differences...). The only GPO I linked was the WSUS server setting which pointed to the 2019 server. There isn't even a virus scanner or firewall configured on the test 2016 server, they are even on the same segment.We are converting more and more of our servers from 2012 to 2016 which means this is more and more of a problem as NONE of them will get updates from WSUS...I have ensured that BITS and the Windows Update services are running.I have run the wuauclt /reportnow and wuauclt /detectnow. I have run the cleanup wizard to deny and remove all of the superseded updates.
