It confused me and I know that something wrong with the update, even with WSUS it fails sometimes.

The error message is 0x87D20417 Auto Deployment Rule download failed,

and 0x80072EE2 Network connection:Windows update Agent encountered transient network ...

If I open the ruleengine.log, 

I found those errors:

Failed to download the update from internet. Error = 12002 SMS_RULE_ENGINE 5/7/2015 2:03:43 PM 6120 (0x17E8)
Failed to download ContentID 16813179 for UpdateID 16820639. Error code = 12002 SMS_RULE_ENGINE 5/7/2015 2:03:43 PM 6120 (0x17E8)

And it is random, it may worked before.


So after a couple of tests and some research, I feel it may not be a local issue. So I went download the patch manually:

I found this from Patchdownloader.log 

Download in progress: 11 percent complete Software Updates Patch Downloader 8/5/2014 1:13:44 PM 2412 (0x096C)


So I tried to download it from Interenet Explorer, guess what, 1.07 kb is the speed I got, no wonder I got timeout error.


So without change settings, I tried run another update schedule at different time, eventually it worked at 8:30AM.
