hello

As per my attachments , in System Preferences - Updates i get the message Updates for this mac are managed bu 127.0.0.1
if i select defaults and enter in my password, i get to view the updates i should be missing.
Anyone with an idea as to why its chaging to 127.0.0.1.
The mac is 10.14.6
Thanks

Do you have any profiles installed? If so is one of them managing Software Updates? Do you have a file in /Library/Preferences/Managed Preferences titled com.apple.softwareupdate.plist?

Is this isolated to a single Mac?

Have you tried
sudo softwareupdate --reset-ignored
