Solution: - Firstly check below GPs details? It can be a gpo conflict:

These three policies mentioned should not be configured from domain level. The SCCM client will apply the policy whenever it is required.

a. Allow signed content from intranet Microsoft update service location.

b. Specify intranet Microsoft update service location

c. Automatic Updates Configuration
