Windows update fails on SBS2008 URGENT!!!

I am administrating a Small Business Server 2008.

For s while ago the update service stopped working.

The error message is:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WINDOWS COULD NOT SEARCH FOR NEW UPDATES.
AN ERROR OCCURED WHILE WHILE CHECKING FOR NEW UPDATES
FOR YOUR COMPUTER.

ERRORS FOUND:
CODE 80244019
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have tried the following which did not helped:

1) Stopped the update service and deleted the SOFTWAREDISTRIBUTION folder.
2) Downloaded and running the System Update Readyness Tool
3) Disabling the Trend Micro AV

Nothing seems to help.
Any suggestions?

I have scanned the server using Trend Micro + Malwarebytes and found it clean!
Still no solution

One more tidbit discovered since this tread started: On the affected SBS server open Windows Update and click the "Check for Updates" button to hit the Microsoft Update site.

The WSUS/Microsoft Update client will get an update from MU. This will then allow the update client _on the server_ to communicate with the now up-to-date WSUS service.
