I have a WIndows Server 2012 R2 that is failing to install Windows Updates.  We pull updates from a WSUS server on our network

Getting an Error 0x80090352

Please see Pics below:


I have tried the following:

stoped windows update service

removed windows update.log and software distribution folder.

restarted Windws Update Services.

Ran wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow

Made sure by looking at the log that the server is communicating with the Update Server.

Having a hard time finding any info on the internet about this error code
