We just noticed that our Mojave machines haven't been updating with netSUS. Originally, we thought it was maybe an SSL issue, but it's actually something going on with the OS/Patch versions.
Say we have a 10.14.0 - brand new computer that wants to check in for updates.
Our netSUS has 10.14.4 checked, but 10.14.5 is available and unchecked (we do have a couple of packages that were released after 10.14.5 checked)
On the computer, if i run a systemupdate -l, it will not show me that 10.14.4 is available and often reports that there are no updates available (or something like itunes, etc.)
As soon as I enable 10.14.5, running systemupdate -l will show the 10.14.5 patch is available.
Now... is there something that gets loaded onto the system that determines which patch a computer should accept? Is it one of the other packages/updates? Seems kind of odd that it won't just update to 10.14.4, which is an approved update.
