Windows Update Error 80244019

I am using a WSUS server and I have some servers that updates are failing on with error 80244019. I have verified that the WSUS server can see the server.

I have attached the update log for one of the failing updates. I'm not really sure if it means that file is missing on the WSUS server or if it can't communicate with the WSUS server so I was hoping someone could tell me.

They are both running windows server 2008 R2 datacenter.
WSUS is version 3.2

Another case of same error and the resolution(WSUSutil.exe reset)

Running reset re-downloads any corrupt/missing updates back into the WSUScontent folder which is causing the 80244019 error

try uninstalling silverlight first then try applying the update.

Fix your group policy that defines your WSUS server to include the port 8530

http://servername:8530

If you are not using port 8530 on your WSUS server then you should run wsusutil reset on your WSUS server

It's more than just Silverlight that it's happening with.

I tried adding the port number but that didn't seem to make a difference, still getting the same error.

When I run wsusutil.exe reset it says that the command is not recognized. I believe that it should be using port 80 though.

you need to be in the same folder as wsusutil.exe to run it

it is not in the path by default.

The patch was for Silverlight

I will give that a try.
I know, that was just an example so I didn't have to send pages and pages for you to look at. :)

Also an FYI for the future, the only pertinent info in the windowsupdate.log is the last 50 lines or so.

The wsusutil reset is timing out and failing, is there a way to increase the timeout period?

"Fatal Error:Timeout Expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding"

Yes I do. I am running the WSUS Cleanup Tool right now and hoping that will allow the wsusutil reset tool to run.

After I ran the WSUS Cleaning Wizard the wsusutil was able to finish successfully and updates are working for all servers again. Thank you all for your help.
