KB4338818 Failed with Error Code 0x80242016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • On August 5th, I installed several Windows Update. All was successful except for KB4338818. It failed with the error code 0x080242016. I've tried the following things but still am not able to install the KB.

    1. Rebooted the server. Reran the check online for Windows Update again. It did not find any updates to install.
    2. Deleted the contents in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download. Rebooted the server. Reran the check online for Windows Update. It still did not find any updates to install.
    3. Downloaded the KB4338818 as a standalone installer. I tried to install it but got a “The update is not applicable to your computer” message. (I've made sure that I downloaded the current version for our server which is Window Server 2008 R2 SP1 x64. Not that it is a prerequisite but KB4284842 & KB4284826 are installed on the server.) 
    4. Ran the sfc /scannow and it did not find any issues.
    5. Ran the System Update Readiness Tool (KB947821) and it did not find any issues.

    Any suggestions on what I should do next or should I forgo attempting to install this KB and hope next month this KB gets superseded?

    Thanks!
