  • Question

  • After spending the morning on google I'm going to post here, windows update failing, my desktop PC updates fine but the servers are struggling, with the error code 80245006. Below is more information I found courtesy of event viewer.

    (Having googled I've tried various fixes with regards to services and files on the machine, also the windows update repair tool)

  • Same error code 80245006 on three Server 2012 R2 systems, no solution.

    Tried:

    - Resetting the SoftwareDistribution folder

    - Resetting Windows Update components via Fixit tool

    - sfc /scannow

    - dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

  • Which update is causing this?

  • Same problem here, but without WSUS and on some machines that hasn't been updated for months. Same error code, and the page windowsupdate.microsoft.com is available.

  • Running into the same issue with our HPC cluster.  12 of the boxes updated correctly, 4 of them are experiencing this same error.  All of them get manually patched at the same time with the same patches.

  • Same problem here, but without WSUS, since one month none of our 2012 servers can be updated.

  • I know this is an old thread, but did anyone ever find a solution to this???  I'm having this problem all over the place, and I am trying to figure out how to work around/through it so that I don't have to spend a whole weekend trying to figure it out when I update our production servers.  All of the other Technet posts I've found have some clown MS 'professional' marking their own reply as the accepted solution despite numerous other replies that their response is useless.  

    Does anyone have an actual way of working through this issue, or at the very least, avoiding it moving forward??
