yes i followed the instructions step by step
what I eventually did and somehow wwokred (I don't know if i missed smth) is that I stopped the procedure and then runned the remove wsusadmin script in order to stop it since it never moved on.
as soon as i Logged i n windows properly i clicked to search for updates and it didn't looped
I then shut down the pc and it installed 141 updates
today I cliked to search for updates and it found some and again it didn't loop
all that without having completed the wsusoff procedure
so it did somehow worked and installed some updates that were enough for the windows to stop looping?
