Cannot install Windows Updates, Install Now button grayed out
Date Added: 9/13/2018

If the Install Now button is grayed out and you cannot check for updates or install them, check for a Group Policy Object called Remove access to use all Windows Update features.  If this is ENABLED or DISABLED, it locks stuff up.  Instead, you have to set that GPO to NOT CONFIGURED in order to unlock those controls.
