Mximum runtime of Server 2016 Cumulative Updates
For the last three months we've had to install the Server 2016 cumulative updates manually on the Servers as they have been failing with the error 0x87D0070C (-2016409844) shown in software center. From reading other posts I can see that this is a 'software update execution timeout' error and that by adjusting the maximum runtime of the update it will resolve the issue.
I changed the runtime from 60 minutes to 240 minutes and this fix did indeed work but I don't want to have to do this every month. I saw that the previous problem was because the update was set to 10 minutes. It seems that Microsoft changed this to 60 minutes. Are there any plans to increase this further or is there something wrong with our SCCM System that it takes over 60 minutes to install?

I have ran into this multiple times too though I only boosted the run time to 70 minutes and that was enough to allow the update to run
