    What updates do i need to make windows update client work ? after clean install from : "en_windows_8.1_enterprise_with_update_x64_dvd_6054382.iso"

    i'm trying to avoid monthly rollup's so i can't go straight to them i'm gonna only install security ones.

    I think the only one that is required is the latest Servicing Stack update.

    The latest Servicing Stack update seems to be KB3173424 from 2016-07-12.

    If KB3138615 did not help in the search, install the latest update for adobe flash player, i.e. KB4056887

    I see you installed KB3172614
    that should have solved the long search issue

    you have another problem
    are you running in Audit mode?

    i didn't know that either, i did the same error as you thinking that i could install updates through WU in audit mode so i can after sysprep the disk image with my installed apps and updates but didn't work, so i thought that i had to install all the msu win8.1 updates manually which would have taken a huge time but luckily i found a way to install them all automatically by using a script and after that i was able to sysprep all this successfully.

    Can you share the script ? Well, many tools can do this anyway like WSUS or WHDownloader or WUMT.

    But still it's a little bs.. that you can't use WU. Wonder why they did this way..
    Well.. the very first build of windows 8 final was a lot more hell than 8.1 but still.. Also what's with the online installation stuff with 8 ? I remember back in 2012 that you can't easy install framework's and other stuff.. runtimes and such.. without being online.. on 8.

    you create text file then you copy these lines and you paste them into the text file and you save then you change .txt extension to .bat extension then you create a folder and you put the needed msu updates with the batch file into the folder and finally you run the batch file to install all updates automatically.

    Code:
    @Echo off
    For %%# in (*.msu) Do (
        Echo: Installing update: %%#
        Wusa "%%#" /quiet /norestart
    )
    Echo Windows Update finished.
    Pause&Exit

    What i always do for offline updating 8.1 is first download all 8.1 updates and run them offline by using W8UI scripts by @abbodi1406 (on boot.wim both indices and install.wim), next i install it in audit mode and use wumt to install any updates offered and install dx9c + the most current dotnetfx4.xx, next i capture it.

    yes i tried first W8UI to integrate updates into,install.wim, it all started well but i got an error while unmounting the image for unknow reason, started again with the same error so i gave up and i decided to find another way to integrate these updates and that's where i found this great script that allowed me to install all the downloaded msu updates in audit mode automatically and it worked great.

    W8UI also integrates updates online in audit mode, all scripts just run dism /Add-Package command ;)
