Using SCCM to deploy WIndows update saved me a lot time. However I am running into this error when try to run windows update manually from CLient.

Error code is 0x80244022 and ask me to try again.


SO look into c:\windows\windowsupdate.log :


2014-09-16 09:49:48:664 1064 1a54 Misc WARNING: DownloadFileInternal failed for http://<fullDomainName>:8530/selfupdate/ error 0x801901f7
2014-09-16 09:49:48:664 1064 1a54 Setup WARNING: SelfUpdate check failed to download package information, error = 0x80244022
2014-09-16 09:49:48:664 1064 1a54 Setup FATAL: SelfUpdate check failed, err = 0x80244022


Copy and paste the http://<fullDomainName>:8530/selfupdate/ address to internet browser and return error, so clearly Client can not communicate SCCM server WSUS 8530 to kick off the update evaluation.

So go to SCCM server and start IIS, go to WSUS administration site and right click it to change Site Bindings.

Under Host Name add * to listen all http title at port 8530, since there is only WSUS is using 8530 so there is no conficts to the other sites.

Run the windows update at client again, BINGO, you got 4 important update! Cheers!


However if you can download http://<fullDomainName>:8530/selfupdate/  through browser, which means you may have a proxy configuration setting, just use 

netsh winhttp set proxy

to read your proxy settings, if the WSUS server is not on Bypass List, you need configure it through:

netsh winhttp set proxy <yourproxyserveraddress:port> "<yourWSUSserverAdress) 

run windows update again, you will find it working. Cheers!
