We're scheduling to update all our machines that can update to the latest macOS Monterey.
Running across many issues, mac's prompt 'mac up to date' or 'no updates available', tried manually on the app store, but just keeps spinning.
would love any advise
Run the following in terminal. This basically resets the Software Update service and allows new updates to flow through again.
sudo launchctl kickstart -k system/com.apple.softwareupdated
Even better, you can make a Self Service policy that runs that (without sudo) with the Files and Processes Payload (Execute Command).
If you are running Nudge or some other update notification, you could also include that as part of the script.
