After you have installed Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), if you encounter server issues, you can resolve them by using the WSUS Operations Guide that gives detailed troubleshooting information to resolve common issues with client computers, download and installation failures, and other problems.

If you cannot install WSUS, this is likely because of a network issue or to a failure to meet the minimum system requirements and prerequisites for hardware and software.
