Windows 8.1 Update VLSC ISO windows update error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a downloaded version of Windows 8.1 Update 1 from the VLSC and Windows Update fails after a clean install. I've installed it on different systems and multiple fail with the same error (80072EFE). The weird thing is that it works fine against our WSUS server just not checking online. There isn't anything blocking the connection to Windows Update so not sure what is going on.

  • Hi,

    If you receive Windows Update error 80072efe or 80072f76 while checking for updates, it might be caused by a connection interruption between your computer and the Windows Update servers. You can run Windows Update Troubleshooter that will automatically find and fix some common problems with Windows update.

    Windows Update Troubleshooter:

    In addition, please check your security application setting, such as firewall.
