My WSUS server has been broken for a while. I currently have it configured through group policy.

On client computers, windows update tells me "Windows could not search for new updates" Code 80072F8F

Every computer on my domain runs into this issue. I installed a diagnostic tool and it told me this:

How can I resolve?

if your wsus server is on 2012, the default port is 8530; 8531 with SSL
if you are using SSL (as it appears in the output) then your server definition in your GPO should be https://servername:8531
