  • Hi,
    Regarding error 80244017, please have a try adding WSUSServer\users with read/execute privileges to the WsusContent folder and it’s subfolders.

  • Hi Ronnie,

    1. Stop the Windows Update service.

      net stop wuauserv
      
    2. Delete the Windows Update cache directory C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution.

      Remove-Item -Recurse -Force C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution
      
    3. Restart the computer. (On one machine it required several restarts to actually get everything deleted from this directory, so keep trying if necessary.)

    4. Run Windows Update manually again. It will fail almost instantly and offer to run a diagnostic tool. Download the tool and allow it to run.

    5. The tool will find and fix some problems. At this point, run Windows Update manually again. Windows Update worked fine at this point.

    also you can try this too..

    Try this at an elevated command-prompt:

    netsh winhttp import proxy source=ie

    and reboot

  • Hi ronnie,
    Please make sure that the users are WSUSserver\users which are added in the permission of WSUS content folder.
    And please have a try to update the windows server 2012 R2 from Microsoft windows update online and see if the error occurs again.
    Best regards,

  • Also make sure IPv6 is enabled on all connected NICs on the server.
