Windows not updating code 80244019 dexter and deb dating
Rather than re-install Windows 7, I thought that upgrading to Windows 8 would surely do the trick. I don’t remember exactly what the little note on the Windows 8 Update dialog was, but it gave me enough of a hint to find the solution.The Windows 7 laptop in question had been joined to a corporate domain at one time, and received (unbeknownst to me) a group policy setting that it should get its updates from a corporate server rather than from Microsoft.
So I tried the power button to turn it off and "nothing".
I post this answer in the hope of helping some poor soul get unstuck since I have not seen this solution anywhere on the web : Situation : W2012R2 Datacenter acting mostly as Hyper-V server, lost Windows Update from MS servers (not WSUS), for no reason I could identify.
On my win 7 Pro 32 bit computer I tried to run Windows Updates this afternoon and it stops immediately with error code 80244019.
Select “Edit Group Policy.” Expand the tree to Local Computer Policy Windows Update and remove any configurations there, especially one for “Configure Automatic Updates.” A decent error message would have saved me many hours of frustration; I hope this article helps you to avoid that.
Microsoft will ship Windows 10 later this year and with it comes an offer to upgrade existing versions of Windows to the operating system for free.
