How to Avoid WSUS Errors

by | Last updated 2023.07.25 | Published on 2019.11.27 | Blog

As a system admin, it’s likely that you’ll run into WSUS errors and Windows Update client errors, as it’s just part of the job. The extremely frustrating part is that often, the error code is a maddening mix of letters and numbers:

0x8024401F

0x8024401c

0x8024402b

0x8024500c

0x80244019

0x800F826

0x8024400d

0x8024401c

0x800705b4

0x80072EE2

0x80d05001

0x8000ffff

0x80244008

0x80070002

Trying to understand and troubleshoot the issue requires researching each error code online, hunting through forums and trying fix after fix until something works. Once you’ve wasted hours troubleshooting, you can go back to other work until the next WSUS error, or the more likely Windows Update client error appears.

There is a better way to maintain WSUS and help avoid errors—install WAM—WSUS Automated Maintenance.
