Hi,

If you receive Windows Update error 80244016, 8024402f, or c80003fa while checking for updates, it might be caused by a connection interruption between your computer and the Windows Update servers.

 It might also mean that a program running on your computer is preventing Windows Update Services from accessing the Internet.

Programs that might do this include firewalls, antispyware software, web accelerators, Internet security or antivirus programs, or proxy servers.

Hence I suggest you to go ahead and follow the steps given in this link to fix this issue.

 You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates

 This error has also to do with Windows Defender not getting definition updates - see this article to troubleshoot your problem

The local Windows Update db is corrupt.

  3. net start wuauserv
  4. check for updates again

I have found that the problem lies with Microsoft .net Framework 4 lient Profile for Win. 7 x86. This update keeps on installing even after hiding it and changing the recommended update setting of automatic to "do not check for updates".

On July 5th when I turned on my computer, which had always done updates without any issue I know of, I first updated my MICROSOFT SECURITY ESSENTIALS definitions successfully and started a full scan.  Next I used the CONTROL PANEL to attempt a general update in case there were any new issues.  Right away I noticed something wrong because I was told, incorrectly, that I had never attempted any updates, never had received any, though this is not true.  The error code is 8024402f.  However, I am NOT having any connectivity issues and I DID download & run the "Mr.FixIt", and rebooted but the problem remains.  I'm wondering if this is some sort of new malicious code that isn't yet part of MICROSOFT's anti-virus definitions.

I have tried everything on this thread and nothing works. My last win updates were performed july 12th and after that nothing. According to windows update no update has ever been performed which is wrong and I cannot search for updates. I will try a roll-back to see if that solves the issue.
