I am trying to update Windows 10 "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1607." The update failed due to the error "These programs need to be uninstalled because they aren't compatible with the upgrade - Symantec Endpoint Protection".

I would like to update Windows 10 without uninstalling Symantec.

To maximize performance on your WSUS server and client computers, decline old definition updates.

To accomplish this task, you can configure automatic approval for revisions and automatic declining of expired updates.

Endpoint Protection definition updates must be approved and downloaded to the WSUS server before they are offered to clients that request the list of available updates.

Clients connect to the WSUS server to check for applicable updates and then request the latest approved definition updates.

Additional Clarification: The Intelligent Updater files are designed to update client installs for SEP or SAV only.

These files do not contain the required files needed by a SEPM or SAV Parent to additionally update any clients attached.

For more information, see Software Updates in Configuration Manager.
