0x80244002 Windows Update Error: How to Fix it
- Check your Internet connection: Make sure you have a stable Internet connection and can access websites without any issues. If your Internet connection is not working properly, fix the connectivity problem first.
- Restart your computer: Sometimes, a simple restart can resolve temporary errors or connection issues. Restart your device and try updating again.
- Disable the antivirus/firewall: Temporarily disable the antivirus or firewall software you have installed and try updating again.
Run the Windows Update Troubleshooter: Windows includes a built-in troubleshooter that can help identify and resolve common update problems. To access it, go to the Windows Settings, then navigate to "Update & Security" > "Troubleshoot" > "Additional troubleshooters." Run the Windows Update Troubleshooter and follow the on-screen instructions.
Clear the Windows Update cache: The Windows Update cache stores temporary files related to updates. Clearing this cache can often resolve update errors. You can do this by opening a Command Prompt as an administrator and running the following commands one by one:
- net stop wuauserv
- net stop cryptSvc
- net stop bits
- net stop msiserver
- ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
- ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 catroot2.old
- net start wuauserv
- net start cryptSvc
- net start bits
- net start msiserver
Disable third-party antivirus software temporarily: Antivirus software can sometimes interfere with Windows Update. Temporarily disable any third-party antivirus software you have installed and attempt the update again.
Perform a clean boot: A clean boot starts Windows with a minimal set of drivers and startup programs, which can help identify if any third-party software is causing the issue. Instructions for performing a clean boot can be found on the Microsoft support website.
