Update Management is a wrapper which uses your machine’s OS update service or package manager – to fetch & install updates.
On Windows Server OS – the Microsoft Update Service can be configured fetch & updates for MS products. And hence UM, then can allow installing MS updates as well. More details here: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/automation/update-management/configure-wuagent#enable-updates-for-other-microsoft-products
Microsoft Update Service on Windows Server OS doesn’t update 3rd party software say Adobe or Java. Hence update management solution can’t also in-turn do the same. Unless tools like Wsus Package Publisher ( https://github.com/DCourtel/Wsus_Package_Publisher ) is used which can publish third-party applications into your WSUS.
