Windows Update fails with 80244023

    Question

  • I am getting failures installing the following updates on Windows Server 2008 R2:

    Security Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (KB2585542)
    Security Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (KB2620704)
    Security Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (KB2676562)
    Security Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (KB2847311)
    Security Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (KB2884256)
    Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (KB2506928)
    Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (KB2541014)
    Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (KB2545698)
    Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (KB2891804)

    I have been having this failure occur for about a week after a fresh install of the OS. I have done some network traffic analysis, and it appears that the servers hosting windows update are part of the problem (or my client is using old inaccurate information).

    For example:

    http://a184-26-143-112.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com/msdownload/update/software/updt/2011/04/windows6.1-kb2506928-v2-x64-express_23d6b471222697d7fba8e25c305ab6d661dd4324.cab

    this is one of the requests that is showing up in the log. If I manually browse to this file, even from a different device or a different network I get an error page:

    Invalid URL

    The requested URL "/msdownload/update/software/updt/2011/04/windows6.1-kb2506928-v2-x64-express_23d6b471222697d7fba8e25c305ab6d661dd4324.cab", is invalid.

    Reference #9.6c8f1ab8.1393521630.eddfa70

    I would like to finish this project, but need to finish patching this machine. Does this need to be addressed by Microsoft/Akamai or is there some way to refresh which servers Windows Update is using to actually download the content of the updates?

    Thanks,

    Jeff
