I am facing problems in applying September and October 2014 CUs using windows update. I have the following:-

  1. SharePoint server 2013 SP1.

  2. Windows server 2008 r2.

I use to have SharePoint 2013 since it being RTM. And I use to update my SharePoint server and applying different SharePoint CU using windows update.

Today for example I got the following using windows update, which include October 2014 CU:-

enter image description here

So I install all the updates, restart the server, then I run the configuration wizard and everything went find.

But I run the following command inside my sharepoint server , I got the following:-

PS C:\Users\Administrator> (get-spfarm).buildversion

Major  Minor  Build  Revision
-----  -----  -----  --------
15     0      4641   1000

Where (4641) means that I still have August 2014 CU and not October 2014, although windows update include the October CU and the config wizard worked successfully. However when I check the Central administration>>upgrade and migration>>check product and patch status, I found that I have September CU and October CU installed,, but this is not reflected inside (get-spfarm).buildversion as follow:-

enter image description here

So I am totally confused about my current situation and if I am missing any of the CUs? Can anyone advice please? Thanks

EDIT here is the log error when i run the following command PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd installfeatures

Try the following:

  1. clear configuration cache http://blogs.msdn.com/b/jamesway/archive/2011/05/23/sharepoint-2010-clearing-the-configuration-cache.aspx
  2. Find current pv value using: stsadm -o getproperty -pn command-line-upgrade-running if -pv value is yes, change to No. If no change to Yes

    stsadm -o setproperty -pn command-line-upgrade-running -pv No

  3. re-run configuration wizard:

      PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd installfeatures
    
  4. If still not working, it might need server reboot
