Most of all to apply Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (MECM) 2002 update, your site must be on version 1806 and above. Furthermore if you plan to upgrade your Configuration Manager to version 2002, you can refer this guide – https://www.prajwaldesai.com/step-by-step-sccm-2002-upgrade-guide/
A quick note to remember is that you install update 2002 starting at the top-level site of your hierarchy. Start the installation from your central administration site or from your stand-alone primary site. Using the SCCM 2002 baseline media, you can install a new site in a new hierarchy.
Since SCCM 1910 had several hotfixes released, some of you might wonder should they be installed prior to installing SCCM 2002 update ?. The answer is NO, you can skip the 1910 hotfixes and directly install SCCM 2002 update. That’s because ConfigMgr 2002 will include all the hotfixes that were released for version 1910.
Note – The version 2002 baseline media should be available for both VLSC and MSDN customers. If you already have the Configuration Manager product key, you can download eval copy and activate the product. If you wish to download it from VLSC, you can do that as well.
