There are no products affected by this package installed on this system when you try to update the SharePoint

This a quiet a common massage that you can experienced with while you are trying to install updates in SharePoint.

These updates can be

 -  Hot fixes
-  SharePoint Updates
-  KBs.

AS message indicates, its giving a feeling that it is been installed in the environment, But when you check in the Central Admin you might wonder it is not installed yet.

How to check the Updates are installed in the SharePoint Environment

-  Open Central Admin
-  Navigate to Upgrade and Migration


You can check those info from Central Admin -> Upgrade and Migration











Then

Select the View Farm where you can examine all the patches in the SharePoint environment.












Here you can see whether particular patch is really installed or not. IF it is not installed and you are getting the message there is something else to check on. There could me various reasons for this.











But most of the times pending windows updates are the root.

How to check windows updates and install the updates


There are many ways that you can check updates, I’m describing a common way which can be applicable for most scenarios

-  Go to control panel

-  Then click on check for updates to confirm that is there any pending updates in the system
















Check products and patch installation status.

For my issue is there are pending updates in windows updates in control panel.

















You can install pending updates from here itself.













After installing the updates you can restart (this is optional) the machine to give a fresh try.
