Please help below situation. Thanks in advance.

The test bed:

Re: WSUS synch sql error

Timeout errors during replica synchronization are a growing problem, and typically traced back to the state of the upstream server maintenance activity.

Here's a blog series at that discusses the causes, remediations, and maintenance requirements to prevent Timeout Errors.
