The default configuration has ALL items are selected. If one of these selections is removed, the above messages are shown, indicating exactly what the update process is looking for during update and what it fails to apply because the updates were not available in repository - it will list these components at the end of the message.
First Message: These updates will be applied if they are in the repository: DAT, Engine, EXTRADAT1000, ENTVRULE1000.
The Engine and DAT application/verification will take place at this point
Second Message: Updates were not applied because packages were not in the repository: EXTRADAT1000, ENTVRULE1000.
This means that the AutoUpdate process looked for updates for DAT, Engine, EXTRADAT1000, ENTVRULE1000 but could only find DAT and Engine update in the repository, it then reports that it did not apply EXTRDAT1000 or ENTVRULE1000 updates because they were not available.
