What are your thoughts on this?
Could it be your wsus is not up to date? 3.2.7600.226 tells us nothing about updates after sp2. 8.1 showing as 6.3 is ok, it's the same for my wsus.
Have you looked up that error code?

Anyway, make sure  to install KB2720211and KB2734608 on your wsus and reboot it.

I would check out this page:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-update-error-800b0001#1TC=windows-7

On that page, you can find the link for the System Update Readiness tool which will resolve issues that prevent your system from installing Windows updates.

You administer wsus and ask where to look? 😊
Well at your update list. Just open windows update and it will offer to list those.

I told you it was not meant sarcastic, don't ignore that, please. If you feel like closing without thanking, do so, but don't blame me if I find something funny and put a smiley into a comment.

Was the link I found helpful at all? I'd hate for this question to be closed because of a misunderstanding or miscommunication without knowing whether or not the problem was resolved.

antrimbc, this is a forum as any other. Although there are customers that pay to receive this service, the experts receive no salary. I always try my best, including "working professionally", but I am still human, make mistakes and try to (share a) laugh from time to time. So I hope no bad feelings remain and wish you a nice day.
