Silverlight KB3011970 listed as expired

Does anyone know why the Silverlight update (KB3011970) released on Tuesday Dec 9 is marked as expired already?  It doesnt mention anything in the article about it being revised or expired, but the SCCM server is marking it expired.  Metadata error?  Does Microsoft correct those or will this patch never show as not expired ion the console?

Why this has not been updated in the KB article is anyones guess, but it looks like there are 4+ december patches under review with a couple already pulled.  Microsoft sending 2014 out with a bang I guess.

it looks like a newer revision for this has been released in the last few hours

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=3011970

if you check your sync logs, you'll likely see that new revision in there

Same here  We Cannot approve (kb3011970) as it has expired but it has already superseded KB297218 so cannot deploy that either in SCCM 2012.

https://support.microsoft.com/kb/3025055?wa=wsignin1.0

"If you do not have version 5.1.31010.0 installed, you will be provided version 5.1.30514(KB297218). This is the current full version of Silverlight.

If you have version 5.1.31010.0 installed, go to the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base to obtain the replacement version

3011970     (https://support.microsoft.com/kb/3011970/            )      December 2014 update for Microsoft Silverlight 5

We have version 5.1.30214 and need to update to version 5.1.30514 so ActiveX Plugin Blocking in IE does not prevent Silverlight sites from running.

if you check the MU Catalog: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=silverlight

You should see there are three SL updates available in recent timeframes.
Note the classification of each - are you synchronising these classifications ?

still don't get the silverlight update in the list.. ( kb3025055)

KB3025055 is not an update package - it's an informational KB article, which refers off to KB3011970 (December SL update package) or KB2977218 (July SL update package), and these two articles both offer packages.

So, don't expect to see an update package named KB3025055 because there isn't a package for that KB.

The update package for KB3011970 has been revised/expired twice since initial release:

Thanks for the suggestions Don.

I enabled Feature Packs for sync in my WSUS console now I get 2 KB3011970 that are still both expired and both supersede KB297218.

[sidebar]: @Kirk - why is your WSUS console showing the update is "declined" ?
Are you declining updates within WSUS on your SUP ? If so, that's a really bad idea.

What about KB2977218 on your WSUS - what's the status detail for that?

(I'm not at work just now to check my SUP nor my (totally separate from ConfigMgr) WSUS reference)

>why is your WSUS console showing the update is "declined" ?

Updates that are expired by MS (which 3011970 is) will automatically get Approval status "Declined" in WSUS, no matter CM or not. 

The text in the gui "It is recommended you decline this update" is indeed confusing or downright wrong because of this.

@Kirk, is KB2977218 visible in your ConfigMgr console (even in "Superseded" status)?

If it's visible, and not in Expired status, you can deploy it.

Just checked my SCCM console. KB2977218 is expired, with nothing superseding it.  There is no available Silverlight in SCCM 2007 at this time.
January 9th, 2015 11:08pm

Same problem here.

Update KB2977218 is superseded and therefore not downloaded with SCCM WSUS Sync. (No problem)

Update KB3011970 is superseded and declined (automatically) and therefore not downloaded with SCCM SWS Sync.

Hey, I have the same problem. Did you find a solution?

Sorry just getting back to the issue.

@DOn no I haven't manually declined anything on the WSUS console in fact never usually launch it as I just sync into SCCM 2012

I solved this in my environment today. On the Microsoft Update Catalog, the updates KB3011970 and KB2977218 (meaning the ones labeled Update for Microsoft Silverlight) can be imported to WSUS and they will show up as separate updates from the originals that were expired. This will allow them to be synced over to SCCM, and you can once again deploy them.
