2. Click Add 1 in the Actions menu.

3. Configure type, File name extension: .esd 1 , Mime type: application / octet-stream 2 and click OK 3 .
MIME Type - application/octet-stream

4. The MIME type is added.

5. Restart the WSUS Administration site.
Restart site

The download of the updates should work.
