Windows Update fails with error code 8007007a RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to set up a Windows 2008 Storage Server as a VM for testing. I have been able to download and install all updates through Windows Update until SP2. When I try SP2, the updater will error at about 95%, 5% before the download is finished. I first tried using the installer package to get around this, but any further updates encounter the same error. Tried to re-install the server with no success again. The VM is currently set up with 2 CPU, 4 GB of RAM, and 40 GB hard drive.

    Here are the steps that I have tried:
    Cleared the download cache from "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Downloads\".
    Stopped the wuauserver service and deleted the contents of "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\", reinstalled Windows Update.
    Uninstalled Antivirus Software.

    Can anyone suggest a solution to this problem?
