Group Policy with Windows Update Server

I'm trying to setup a WSUS, having everything on the server installed, updates downloaded and accepted, etc... ready to go

problem is, when I go into group policy and try to change the 2 relevant settings:

Computer Config>Policy>admin template>windows component>windows updates
*configure automatic updates (to set update policy- i tried allow local admin to choose)
*specify intranet microsoft update service location (to set WSUS location - mandatory for WSUS use am I correct?)

once I kick out this gpo, the local users are no longer able to run updates themselves, getting the settings are controller by system admin message

I want to use WSUS, but I want the ability to manually run updates to still be in the hands of users - especially onsite people who may need to manually run updates either after restoring a machine or because an update may be required for something else to run correctly

what am I missing? is there a way to set the gpo to tell computers the WSUS location but otherwise leave the settings alone?
