I have problem with installing Microsoft update over KSC. Most of patches and updates in management console are called "not assigned for installation"
What is the meaning of this title? What should I do to solve this?

Thank you in advance

You have to approve the installation at right lower corner as it shown at the screenshot.

Thank you for answering

I did that before, but my problem doesn't solved.
You also need to have a task setup to install the updates.

Depending on how you set the task, by changing the update to "approved", it may install the task.

Our updates are a complex and terrible thing & we have it set so that the update has to be added to the update task by manually adding as we can't allow certain updates to certain systems automatically.

You can add and update to a task by right clicking the update, selecting "Install update" and "Add rule to specified task" and then you drill down through your structure to find the appropriate update task.

We ended up moving all our update tasks to the top level under managed devices and then using exclusions to target the updates to the right systems
