Silverlight 5.1.41212.0 breaks WUA on Windows 10 / Windows 10 WUA troubleshooting
I recently worked on a case where the WUA agent was not working on newly imaged Windows 10 systems after patch Tuesday February 2019.
It was determined that an old version of Silverlight was the root cause of the problem and the resolution was to install a newer version of Silverlight
Silverlight 5.1.41212.0 breaks the WUA agent on newly imaged Windows 10 systems after patch Tuesday February 2019.
Installing Silverlight 5.1.50915.0 resolves the issue.
NOTE: If manually updating Silverlight to 5.1.50915 resolves the problem and you want to automate the Silverlight update via Radia Patch Manager open a case requesting the custom XML file MSC-KB4023307. This is currently available for Win7, Win8.1, and Win10 systems. if you require additional OS's please add the OS's to the case when opening the request.

Troubleshooting WUA on Windows 10:
Run Powershell offline scan to check WUA (Scan-UpdatesOffline.ps1)
Copy the wsusscn2.cab file into c:/temp or change the .ps1 path to wsusscn2.cab,
If successful the output should look like this:
Run PowerShell to convert WindowsUpdate data to readable format
Output is sent to the desktop and should look like the following:
