      The software publishing packages are no longer accessible and returns the message below. This applies to all accounts which previously work fine by allowing the publishing of third party updates.



      This resolved the problem.



      WSUS patch causes Access Denied errors in Patch Manager

      The the following error occurs when you try to access any software publishing tasks in the Patch Manager console, and you are not able to connect to the update server.


      Patch Manager alters permissions on the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Update Services\Server\Setup registry key when it is installed alongside a WSUS server. This error occurs whenever those permissions are reset, typically when WSUS is reinstalled. However, Microsoft update KB2720211 also resets these permissions, causing the same issue.


      Ensure the local Users group has read access for the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Update Services\Server\Setup registry key on all WSUS servers collocated with Patch Manager:

          Open Registry Editor (regedit).
          Select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Update Services\Server\Setup.
          In the Edit menu, select Permissions.
          In the Permissions for Setup window, select the local Users group.
          Under Permissions for Users, select Read in the Allow column.
          Click OK.
