I have a Win 2008 R2 server running AD. It has not updated in almost two years. When I try to run update I get error 80244019. I think it may have something to a WUS they use have but no longer do although we do have one running at another facility for that facility only. I attached the screen shot.

Ensure that BITS and the 'Windows Updates' service are started/running, the error 0x80244019 points to many cases where these services are not started.

I solved this issue by checking out which update it stumbled on (check out update history). In my case it was "KB907417: Update voor Office 2003".
I downloaded the update and manually installed it. Then I rebooted the laptop (Dell Latitude). After that the problem was solved.

Let me know. Also if you try to download the file, choose "Engels" from the menu next to the download button. It will get the English version for you.

Is the computer clock (time and date) of the computer well synchronized with its respective time zone?

Is the windows server activated?

Can you try updating an update manually?

If everything is ok, then try update from the internet once again, and then shows here the c:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log of your server

I could not do a manual update because my version of IE was out of date (8). I installed the updated version of IE but it requires a reboot. Being that it is a production system I will have to do it after hours. I will post back tomorrow with results.

OK. I was able to get updates after updating my browser and restarting my server. Thanks for all the help.
