Windows update Error 8024500c on W10 Client connecting to WSUS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Windows 10 PC connecting to my local WSUS server for updates. I don't use the store and want all updates pulled from the WSUS server.

    So I enabled the "Do not connect to any Windows Update Internet locations".

    This breaks the check for updates on the client with error 8024500c.

    How do I force W10 to only get updates from the WSUS server?

    Why is checking for updates on W10 so god awful slow... (Even when there are no updates)

  • The answer to this is actually simple;

    When a client is asked to do a manual check, and you have set the "Do not download from any Microsoft Internet location" policy, and the computer has not yest reported/registered with WSUS you will get this error. Once the computer is in WSUS's database this error does not recur.

    The "Do not include drivers" has no bearing on the error.

    The advice to not configure that policy is not good advice!!! You should never ever trust Windows Update to install drivers, unless you want a life of misery.

    Did you set 3 entrys for your WSUS?
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate
    UpdateServiceUrlAlternate
    http://WSUS:8530
    If not, pls do so and restart your Client again.

    Good question, i think the would do it better, but it is not better
    than before. ;)

  • Hello,

    If you have enabled Do not connect to any Windows Update Internet locations , you may not be able to Check Online for updates from Microsoft update. 

    Please also make sure Do not include drivers with Windows updates policy is Not configured. 

    Whether you can get updates from WSUS server successfully? Any error message in the event log related to Windows update?
