Windows update error 80248015

A few days ago, I routinely checked my VM for updates. The Windows update dialog opened and it looked like I had never before updated this machine. That is weird. Anyway, I will now check for updates and Windows will be happy. At least, I taught so.

When I clicked on the button [ Check for updates ], Windows update popped up an error message that it cannot search for new updates. The reason was very strange – the service is expired.

Windows Update failed with the error code 8024402C

I have a very strict policy that servers must not access the Net. If a server needs to be accessible from the Net, it will be placed in the DMZ zone with very rigid firewall rules. To update all servers, I need to implement the WSUS server in the local network.

I never let servers update automatically. Rather, I let them notify me about available updates and then I will manually run an installation process.

Installation of IE11 failed with code 9C47

Recently, I found that one of the servers doesn’t have IE11. I was surprised by that, but OK. I never use IE (or any other browser) on any server. Additionally, most of the servers don’t even have the default gateway address.

I ran Windows update, it started to work….

In the past few weeks, I had a series of problems with the WSUS server. It just stops. So, I need to check the server and fix the problem.

You can’t update the updated driver

I regularly update my laptop. In addition to the Windows update site, I like to periodically check either the manufacturer’s site of the laptop or the component manufacturer’s site. I like to optimize my computer at the most. I have to unleash the full potential of each piece of hardware. Virtualization is a tough job.

On the manufacturer’s site, I can find drivers for chipset, video adapter, RAID controller, etc. These drivers are the latest versions published by vendor. Often they are newer than drivers in the Windows archives. Continue reading

Windows update error 80244022

A few days ago I updated my office laptop to Windows 10 build 1703. This part passed fine. However, after the reboot, Windows update reported an error with code 80244022. The explanation of this error is unclear – something went wrong.

After a few restarts, many retries, even deletion of the Software Distribution folder from the Windows folder, I searched the Net. Many answers were like “it’s just gone”. As my error isn’t just gone with the wind, I knew that it’s time for the HEV suite, crowbar and deep dive into the world of logs and Windows services.
