Windows Server 2016 – Windows Update Settings stuck on Custom setting

Ran into an issue today where we were unable to change Windows Update from Custom to Manual or any other setting.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
