    So you want to install just SOME updates but not all?  You want to continue to defer updates but the clock is running out?

    If you want to defer updates MORE than what they already are, disable the internet, Unpause the patches (resume), it will start to try to scan for updates but can’t because it’s offline, now reenable the pause and finally, reeenable the Internet.

    Now you want to install SOME updates but not others? Use WUmgr tool. You can then selectively install just some updates and not all of them.

    (kudos to Geekdom for posting that detailed post about how to download and use the tool)
