Windows update error 80248007

    Question

  • Hi,

    Decided to install windows 8 pro.

    Have installed KB2734608 on the WSUS server (Win2k8R2 + SCCM 2012 + WSUS 3.0SP2)

    Now when I try to update I get:

    There was a problem getting the list of updates for you PC. To continue, please reopen Windows Update (Error Code: 80248007)

    There is an update but it wont install. The update is the SCCM Client. When I click install update all I get is Failed: 1 update Errors found Code 80248007 Windows update ran into a problem.

    Any ideas

  • Open start and search for Action Center and then open troubleshooter there and run troubleshooter for Windows Update. Do these steps in the PC which you face the problem.

  • Hi,

    You can rename %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution to SoftwareDistribution.old for a test.

  • IM having the same problem this is on a new pc just purchased and trying to update it.  Says 13 updates.  I have tried several times to download and install.  system installs shuts down, and restarts says configuring updates and hangs at 13% every time.  I even restored the computer back to the system default state with backup disks.  logged back on tried again and ran the trouble shooter you stated above. get the same error.  I really think this windows 8 updates are buggy or something.  I have tried everything and evening resetting the computer to default manufacturer settings.  Seriously not liking windows 8.
