I am having recurring issues searching for updates through Windows Update. The last time this happened I looked through my list of installed updates and tried installing 1 by 1 manually through the support website... and eventually it started working again. I assume it was hung up on one of the updates somehow, but I don't have a lot of experience with this issue.
Error code is in the subject. Research only tells me it is a very generic error code that implies Windows Update is having a hard time communicating with the server. Any help resolving this issue would be great. My machine will not allow me to download Windows 10 until I can get past this error. And of course I'm happy to post any log files or any such necessary diagnostic tools, just not sure where to start.
