Windows Update Error 80244019

From the host computer, Windows update fails with error 80244019. Update are coming from our WSUS server. On The WSUS server the event log shows errors:

The DSS Authentication Web Service is not working
The SimpleAuth Web Service is not working.
The Client Web Service is not working.
The Server Synchronization Web Service is not working
The API Remoting Web Service is not working.
The Reporting Web Service is not working

Anyone knows how to turn on or fix these services? I think they are related to the host not being able to download and install updates.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is the host computer Windows Vista?
