I have a brand new install of Server 2008 R2. After running some updates and restarting, the server would not continue downloading the rest of the updates.

I tried Uninstalling the installed updates, fiddle around with the services to no avail.

I cant even add any roles to this server now.

Please take a look at the error messages and let me know if you can help me out here.

Thank you.

Run the update readiness tool and see if it detects a failure in the windows updates:

I did that already. It ran for like an hour without giving me any results so I canceled it.

did it finish entirely though? you should let it complete and issue a log.

If this is a new build, me personally, would reload to avoid issues.

If this is a production machine already I would allow Update readiness tool to complete, troll logs and correct issues identified.

Also, assuming something is corrupt i would perform a sfc scannow on the os.

This post seems relevant but not entirely identical to your issue. the steps outlined in the 'Answer' post well documented.

Was not able to resolve the issue, and had to create a new VM.

Should have taken a snapshot before.
