Windows Update failing with 80200056

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have recently installed Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard as guest OS on Windows Server 2012 Standard with Hyper-V as host.

    All attempts to download and install updates using Windows Update have been failing with 80200056 error code.

    Here is what event log recorded:

    Log Name : Microsoft-Windows-WindowsUpdateClient/Operational

    Source : WindowsUpdateClient

    Message : Windows Update failed to download an update.

    Please help.

  • Might try downloading and installing update rollup.

  • Thanks Dave.

    I installed the update rollup you sent. However, the issue still persists.

    I can manually download the updates using the KB number, however, this solution is not practical.

    I ran the DISM tool and here is the output.

    C:\Users\Administrator>DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.3.9600.16384

    Image Version: 6.3.9600.16384

    [==========================100.0%==========================]
    No component store corruption detected.
    The operation completed successfully.

  • These replies prove my point why Microsoft support sucks.  You make S**t products that are riddled with errors and then when people need help you send damn robots to reply.  I can't even figure out an easy way to get a refund on my Windows store 8 app that I purchased.  I have to call some damn toll free #.  Google allows refunds though the internet so does Google.  !@#$!@#$ !

  • Hi,

    I was facing the same issue. I clicked  on Review Important updates link and found there was an update with size ranged from 9.01 to 10.05 mb. I un-checked this update and click install. Every thing went fine after this.

    Environment: Host Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter. Trying update on Hyper-V Virtual Machine Guest Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter.

  • Tq Sir 

    Resolve my Prob.,

  • 1. press the windows key + x
     select cmd prompt Admin
     or open a cmd prompt with admin rights however you normally do there are many ways
     When you have the cmd prompt window open and it must be one that has the heading bar - administrator command prompt

       copy and paste this into the window

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

       and press enter

     you should receive the response
     Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool etc and a flashing cursor
     wait for that to complete
     approx. 15 minutes

     you should hopefully then receive the restore operation completed successfully and all being well - the corruption was repaired

     type exit press enter and reboot

     2. Open the admin prompt again and run the sfc /scannow again

    =========================================================

    Apparently the problem is caused by a corrupt CNBJ2530.DPB file.  I performed the above, and all the problems magically disappeared.

  • I have been having the same issue, along with MANY others...when I do the restorehealth i get

    error:87

    the cleanup-image option is unknown.

    If I try to do the sfc/scannow it tells me Resource Protection could not start the repair service

    any ideas?

  • For the restorehealth, bring a space after every /.

  • Nice attempt, but unfortunately more Microsoft "DUD" code.

    Thanks.  Unchecking one of the smaller updates and retrying worked for me.
