Hello!

We have Windows Server 2008 R2 that doesn't want to update. Error code is 80248014. Tried FixIt from Microsoft website - didn't work.

 

Can you guys help me get Windows to update, please?

Are you using a WSUS server for updates, or getting them directly from Microsoft? Make sure your registry keys and/ or group policy are set correctly, depending on the source of your updates.

Are you running antivirus on that server? Some AV software has been known to cause problems running updates.

 

The error you are receiving indicate your Windows Update files are corrupt. If the fixit tool failed to resolve it, you will have to reset WU manually.

 

You should start by opening a command prompt, running it as administrator, and run sfc /scannow.

 

If that still doesn't resolve the issue, go to services.msc and stop the BITS, wuauserv and cryptsrv services. Then go to C:\Windows and renames the Software Distribution folder to something like Software Distributon.bak. Restart the services or reboot the server, which does basically the same thing.

The try updating again.

Getting directly from Microsoft, registry seems to be OK.

Microsoft Security Essentials.

That didn't help, unfortunately.

Well, and that did help, once. It installed some updates, then rebooted. After a few days I checked out what's happening. So, at the moment:
1. Windows doesn't update automatically, I have to click the button to search for updates.
2. When I try to search for updates, I get error 80248014 again.

What can I try to do next? Please help.
