    Yes I have SP3, unfortunately microsoft has permanently closed the site for updates.
    The only thing that can be done by microsoft is to upload in an iso all the updates that were released until May 2014, when the support expired.

    microsoft update catalog is still open, you would have to download each individual update. I am fortunate that I have a cache of all the updates, :)

    I installed the updates with this tool "WSUS Offline Update 9.2.1", downloaded the updates to the client folder and went through them one by one, then downloaded the wanacry update. The bad thing is that while it has an option to create an ISO for automatic offline installation, at the end of the process it always makes an error and does not create it. I hope Microsoft releases an official ISO with all the updates.

    was done automatically, from the yellow shield, on the site does not check for updates [Error number: 0x80072EFD], were installed during the shutdown of the pc. Yes they are old updates. Until recently, however, it did not install and we had to go through them with the mini tool.
