Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) is not currently supported by Azure Update Management.
Update Management is an important feature in Azure to patch VMs OS and currently (based on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/automation/update-management/update-mgmt-overview#clients) the following Linux distributions are supported: CentOS 6/7, RHE 6/7, SUSE 11/12 and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 16.04 LTS and 1804 .
This will be beneficial for businesses with heavy Oracle Software presence when they consider Azure as a cloud provider (AWS supports OEL for their Automated Update feature)

Official support for Oracle Linux is expected by Q2 CY’21.
Don't turn a recently patched server to compliant before the server has been rebooted (after patching). the existing implementation turns a recently patched server to compliant before it's restarted and can lead a person to forget to restart the server and leaving the patches not yet applied.51 votes

We typically apply patches the weekend after Patch Tuesday but it's not always the second weekend of the month so we can't schedule it with the options available.167 votes
We are working on the next iteration of Update Management which is set to provide the capability for users to set a recurring ‘day’ for their schedule
When I choose "week days" as my scheduling option, it only works for the first run of the schedule. The next scheduled date takes on the same day of the month as the first run, and when I go to edit the schedule, it has reverted to "Month days". This means I must continually check on my schedules and adjust them after each run. Please fix. Thanks.4 votes
