Windows update error using WSUS


I have recently deployed WSUS and am having an issue with a couple of updates. I have managed to deploy over 1000 security updates to all of our PC's but cannot get two updates to install on some of the PC's, I get the same error for both the updates. The PC's that have these updates installed Im assuming have had this update installed before I deployed WSUS.

The error I receive On the Client PC's is code 80244019

Having read up on this error I have read that this is linked to a potential Virus, having scanned the PC's using Mcafee I can confirm no Viruses are present on the PC's. I therefore referred to the WindowUpdate.log file

Upon inspection of this I can see the following errors (I have replaced server/domain names with ????)

2015-11-05      13:21:56:552      1128      1a88      DnldMgr        Progress failure bytes total = 11049823, bytes transferred = 0

Anyway if I try to browse to the location C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder on the WSUS server I cannot see the 9d2d12c4b34d8cad2cc894ca890f31ca Folder.

I also get a Http 404 error when trying to browse to URL  http://lfv?????????.?????local:8530/Content/7E/ from the client PC's

I therefore assume this is the cause of the issue, the fact the update that the client is attempting to download is not there. However I have attempted to reset WSUS using wsusutil.exe tool. To do this I opened a CMD prompt as an administrator, browsed to the %drive%\Program Files\Update Services\Tools folder and run the reset command.

I have also run a fresh syncronization within WSUS.

I have attempted to download the updates from the client PC's again and still receive the same error.

Does anybody have any ideas?

Sounds to me like the files havent finished downloading to the server yet.

On the home page(Click on server name in WSUS) and look at download status.

Hi dstewartjr

Thanks for your response, The download status shows the following

Updates needing files: 0

On that same page, does your server indicate it's using port 8530 ???

The connection settings are as follows:

Type: Local/SSL
Port: 8531
User role: Administrator
Server Version: 6.3.9600.16384

I did consider the port number but ruled this out as other updates have successfully been pulled from the Wsus server. We are using SSL encryption with our updates

Does any body have any further comments on this? Really starting to pull my hair out with this issue

Any help would be appreciated

DonNetwork AdministratorCommented:
Ok I see Port: 8531

Does your group policies specify this as well ??

Quickest way to check is from command prompt type

Reg query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

Hi dstewart

Thanks for this. I can confirm I have completed all the steps in the article provided above. This is the article I used for support when originally setting Wsus up.

I can also confirm that the group policy specifies the SSL settings too. I have double checked this with the Reg query too.

Im beginning to think that maybe our Anti-Virus software is causing this, therefore Im currently awaiting for our security team to remove Mcafee Endpoint Encryption, DLP endpoint and on access scanner. Then I will reattempt with these uninstalled.

I will update this space one this has been completed

DonNetwork AdministratorCommented:
Oh...cause your windowsupdate.log says

see screenshots attached. I have double checked the settings on both the WSUS server and The client PC

Hi dstewartjr

I cannot get my head round this at all. I have triple checked the GPO i have in place, I have triple checked the Client PC Registry settings which also states port 8531.

I have approved other updates for the PC's all of which have installed. I just cannot get the following updates to install


I can also confirm that after clearing out the Windowsupdate.log file reattempting the install the log file still shows the failure and references port 8530.

Is there any reasons that the 8530 port appears to being used for these updates? Im confused!

If I manually install the update (from windows update without WSUS) the updates install with no issues. However with having over 50 PC's with the same issue this is not really an option to follow up with

Try deleting the wsus registry entries, and then run wuauclt / resetauthorization /detectnow
