Windows 2016 server not updating wsus

If I run a report on one of the servers and I set the product filter to "Windows Server 2016" I get 31 updates installed or not applicable. The status for all of them is "Not Applicable" They are all Critical updates and Security Updates.

I have manually gone through the installed updates on one of the servers in question and verified that these "Not Applicable" updates are not installed.

We can manage updates through the WSUS console, simply open it up through the Tools menu in Server Manager.

In the WSUS console we can view different types of updates, as shown below.

When viewing the updates you will be able to see if they have been approved or not.

I have run the wuauclt /reportnow and wuauclt /detectnow. I have run the cleanup wizard to deny and remove all of the superseded updates.

I have verified that the machines are in the correct groups in AD and in WSUS.
