I think a while back there was an issue with how the 10.14.6 and 10.15.7 updates were listed from the softwareupdate -l command. This is what the list command shows:
Software Update Tool Finding available software Software Update found the following new or updated software: * Command Line Tools (macOS Mojave version 10.14) for Xcode-10.3 Command Line Tools (macOS Mojave version 10.14) for Xcode (10.3), 199250K [recommended] * macOS 10.14.6 Update- macOS 10.14.6 Update ( ), 3037755K [recommended] [restart]

I tried using "macOS 10.14.6 Update- " and "macOS Catalina 10.15.7 Update- " to download those updates, but then is says:

If I recall, the issue was that there’s an extra space after the dash at the end of the names. I would give that a try. But, to be safe one of the things that you can do is try to highlight the actual update name entirely. See if there is that extra space at the end like I mentioned.

OK never mind. I just noticed that in your post you actually do have the extra space in the names. Hmm, I’m not sure what the issue is then.

@mm2270 I think you're right about the extra space. I'm trying to escape it with now to see if that makes a difference.

Escaping it and putting it quotes don't make a difference:
Downloading: "macOS 10.14.6 Update- " "macOS 10.14.6 Update- ": No such update
