Server2008 SP2 Not updating RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys

    I have been searching for a resolution regarding a server 2008 SP2 updates failing.

    I get an error 80246001. There is no WSUS server in domain and GPO has been configured for it to go to MS servers to get update.

    I have searched most of the solutions and applied but no luck.

    I have applied registry fixes, proxy, and MS' own update tool fix but same error. Ran all sorts of malware, virus and root kit checks. Ran hijackme, AVG, MS' malicious detector, Kaspersky, and various other things came back clean.

    Please, if anyone has any other ideas on how to fix this please let me know.

    Issue with INSTALLATION FAILURES should be addressed with the forum that covers the PRODUCT being updated. Once the installation file arrives on the client system, neither WU/MU nor WSUS are involved in the matter anymore. If these are OS updates, then inquire in the Windows Server forums; if these are .NET updates, then inquire in the .NET forums.

    However, as a starting point on WS2008R2 systems, when updates fail installation... run the Security Update Readiness Tool (SURT) and fix anything identified as broken, then try the update again.

  • Hi,

    Rename software distribution folder and restart windows update service.

    If the error persists please try to reset windows update components.

    How do I reset Windows Update components?
