Server 2012 – Windows Update Error ‘8024402C’

KB ID 0000715 


I saw this on a freshly built Server 2012 (Datacenter) server this morning.

First discount the obvious, make sure this server has internet access and is not going out via a proxy server, (unless you have configured the proxy properly for Windows Updates).

In my case the fix was simple, I’m assuming that because it was a new server, it was waiting on a reboot to do something with the Windows Update Service. I say this because after I rebooted it. (Press Windows Key+I).

Server 2012 Shut Down

The server was more than happy to start pulling down updates.
