  1. Hello,
    Updateservicespackage folder is used for third party applications.so if you are using SCUP or in built SCCM third party patching option like for products Adobe,dell etc then this folder is required under WSUS.

    Regarding permissions as per recommendation the root folder i.e WSUS should have atleast read permissions for users and NT Authority service.
    But it has been seen that sometimes it cause issues while downloading third party updates for which permission for everyone is required.
