Which virtualization are you using? KVM?

How did you get that update offered?

I can't reproduce it, but then my servers are on a patch management software.
And I can't check on WU because I don't want to install the new update client.

Anyway, I would uncheck that patch when updating the other guests if I were you. And work on a copy / snapshot.
