    is WSUS offline update a better/safer way to update

    I have clean installed 8.1 (through recent .iso released).
    I have 54 updates showing up.

    because of past experience - mine, and that of others - I am a bit scared about using WU to install them.

    is WSUS offline updates a good way to install these large number of updates?

    thank you

    It works might take longer to use it that the default WU (Read this for a explanation of steps for WSUS Offline).
    54 updates is not that many for the Default WU.

    IMHO the total size of the combined updates,and how long it would take should be the deciding factor.
