Resolution

To install WSUS role inside container it is necessary to configure Windows Update service from within the container using below commands:
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v NoAutoUpdate /t  REG_DWORD /f /d 0
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate" /v WUServer /f /d http://vzwinupdate.sw-soft.com
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate" /v WUStatusServer /f /d http://vzwinupdate.sw-soft.com

net stop wuauserv
net start wuauserv
