Windows Update on Server 2019 broken RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Server 2019 domain controller that will not connect to Windows Update. When you check through updates in the GUI through Settings, it just shows dots moving left-to-right at the top. Nothing else ever happens. 

    On the same server, IE is broken. If you open IE, it either closes right away or hangs with this in the URL bar:

    res://ieframe.dll/acr_depnx_error.htm

    An application error does appear in event viewer but it's completely generic and provides no useful info. I'm wondering if the two issues are related. 

    The server is able to connect to the Internet. Chrome runs fine on it.

    Thoughts?

  • It appears that an add-on in IE may be causing it...

    (Possibly an adobe flash add-on version issue)

  • Might try;

    sfc /scannow

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

  • We tried those reliable commands. Unfortunately it didn't help.

  • Another possibility is a repair install by running setup.exe from the root of the install media, but the much cleaner / safer method would be to stand up a new one for replacement.

    You can use dcdiag / repadmin tools to verify health correcting all errors found before starting. Then stand up the new 2019 guest, patch it fully, license it, join existing domain, add active directory domain services, promote it also making it a GC (recommended), transfer FSMO roles over (optional), transfer pdc emulator role (optional), use dcdiag / repadmin tools to again verify health, when all is good you can decommission / demote old one.
