I have a Windows Server 2016 running WSUS (WID Database). The nodes on my system are all Windows 10 Professional. They are configured through group policy to check the Server 2016 for updates. The nodes and server are not behind a proxy in anyway.
Based on the WSUS Console it shows all the nodes are checking in when I press "Check for Updates". When you look on the node it throws the following message:
There were some problems installing updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for informaiotn, this may help: (0x8024401c)
I have googled this error and I have found little information or none at all for this error. I have tried all of the suggestions I could find but nothing has resolved this issue. What I can make out of the last .ELT file when I open it with word is:
There was an error communicating with the endpoint at http://FQDN:8530/ClientWebService/client.asmx. There was an error receiving the HTTP reply. The operation did not complete within the time allotted.
When I do a
Get-WindowsUpdateLog in PowerShell I just get a long list of updates it can't find. No actual communication information.
I can get to that link if I put it in to a browser and the firewall is not blocking WSUS. What am I missing? Can anyone supply me with any other information. I am also still learning how to actually read ELT files using the correct procedure.
EDIT 1: Attempting to run the Characters and WDK10 on the client to interpret the ELT files better.
EDIT 2: Running the
tracefmt.exe tool gives me the following Error:
Cannot Open logfile for reading
This happens on everyone. I do see from TraceView from the SDK tool kit that all the events show system times and No Format Information found. Is it connected and not getting this data or is it just looking for all these updates?
