ha... Most likely because those patches may not be applicable for HPC Edition OS. I looked through few of those patches, and could not confirm that they are applicable either.
Here's the guide that covers all check points that I know of:
KA366513 - BBSA Windows Patch Troubleshooting: Analysis Job does not report Missing expected patch
What you can do is to use Live Update and see if it find any of those patches missing.
Also, you can try to manually install one of those patches and see if it fails with "patch not applicable".
See if those actions contradict Shavlik's results, and we could take it from there.
we checked the server with MBSA and it shows the patch in question as missing.
After that we deployed the Hotfix via BL and it installed fine !
Clicking on Hotixes afterwards does still not show it as installed, but i think that is due to Shavlik not scanning for it.
So i think we have a Shavlik issue here ?! Or ?

According to Shavlik support matrix, these are supported:
Windows Server 2008 R2 HPC (x64) GOLD
Windows Server 2008 R2 HPC (x64) SP1
Windows Server 2008, HPC Edition (x64) SP1
Windows Server 2008, HPC Edition (x64) SP2
In our product_mappings we have these, so seems that we also support it:
WINDOWS\ SERVER\ 2008\ R2\ HPC\ (X64)=OS
WINDOWS\ SERVER\ 2008,\ HPC\ EDITION\ (X64)=OS
If the Trace.txt showed that the patches are not applicable, yet, they install successfully manually, I'd say it's a Shavlik issue too. Please file a ticket with support, reference this thread, we'll have an engineer validate in-house and work with Shavlik. Provide trace.txt, systeminfo output, and confirmation of manual installation to speedup the process.
Hi, will do and update once we know more
