Make your SharePoint farm aware of pending patches to apply

Good day, I will leave this little but wonderful trick here in my blog.

Whenever you experience the following message while applying patches in SharePoint by running the following command:

PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd installfeatures

And then error happens telling you:

The applicationcontent command is invalid or a failure has been ncountered. The server farm will not work with missing installs. Add “-cmd installcheck -noinstallcheck” to the command-line to ignore this warning.

Pending updates

Please make sure to run the following PowerShell command on each server in the farm, before running the PSConfig command again:

Get-SPProduct -local

This way your farm will be truly aware of the patches are pending to apply
