I am trying to push windows updates to a group of servers and when I do, I get an error on the server that is "An error has occurred; Code 80244019 windows update encountered an unknown error"

I am trying to push windows updates to a group of servers using WSUS (using a WID Database).  When I do this, I approve for installation, do not set a deadline and it succeeds according to WSUS.  When I log on to one of the servers, the update is not there.  I run the command "wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow" and it still won't show.  I look at the windowsupdate.log in the %windir% and find that it is pointing to the error "Code 80244019 windows update encountered an unknown error".  I am curious if someone can help me on this.  I am seeing that it could be a number of things, but not sure which direction to go.  Thanks in advance for any help.Screenshot---10-14-2014---10-38-08-PM.pn

You most likely dont have the gpo correctly setup using :8530

Check your gpo "Specify Intranet Microsoft update service location."

and make sure it says http:\\servername:8530

It does, but I also put the domain name behind the servername to make sure that it wasn't a DNS issue:  http://servername.domainname.org:8530

This can also happen when the files the client is looking for are missing.

Try running on your wsus server the command WSUSutil.exe reset

Also in addition to the command that was given to me, I ran psexec.exe from Sysinternals and connected to each server to run wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow  This started the communication once again immediately.  Thanks for all the answers and responses.
