Windows 8.1 after rollback from Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work for an IT company and we have had a ton of issues with windows 10. I've worked with a few Microsoft Techs on some of these and their solution was to rollback Windows to the previous version. So we have been doing this on several machines that seem to have no fix for Windows 10 right now. I've had minor issues after restoring back to Windows 7, but after restoring back to Windows 8.1 on this customers PC, windows update no longer functions. The error is: There was a problem checking for updates. Code 80244019 Windows Update ran into a problem. 

    I have researched this and tried several different means to resolve this issue. I'll do my best to list everything.

    1. Ran the Microsoft Fixit for windows update. Which says it does find issues and fixes them but I still go back to the same error.

    2. Ran sfc /scannow. Which again says it finds problems and fixes some but is unable to fix all of them. 

    3. Ran icacls * /T /Q /C /RESET then ran sfc /scannow and still get the same error.

    4. Ran chkdsk and no issues found.

    5. All services required for Windows Update to run are running.

    I'm still trying to google to find more options, but figured I would post here and maybe someone has already solved this issue.

    Thanks for your time.

  • Not getting anymore responses I did some more research and found this command to run for DISM.

    Dism.exe  /Online  /Cleanup-Image /AnalyzeComponentStore

    This cleaned up the component store and allowed windows updates to start working again. Minus a few errors installing a few updates. Working on those now but the major issue has been resolved.

  • Probably the Windows update temporary folder has been corrupted.

  • Hi,

    For this problem, firstly, try to use DISM command below to fix system components for test:

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    If no use, try to use system built-in troubleshooter for test:

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting\All Categories\Windows Update

    Please provide the detailed information if it provide error results.

    If problem persists, access to the path below to collect Windows update log file and upload it to OneDrive, then post the download link here.

    C:\Windows\Windows Update.log
