Got the same problem :(

I tired searching for solutions, but everything (for Windows 7) was "old fixes",  the most recent were from 2016 or early 2017.  With system updates occurring regularly, a past fix that worked then may not now.   

Hopefully, whatever this current fix is, it's simple and easy to follow.  Attention Windows Tech Help: I request dumb-downed instructions with step by step pictures, please.

Same issue exactly and ran troubleshooter that fixed 3 item but left me with a not-fixed item "Windows Update Errorx8024402C" .

After restoring computer to2 days earlier when update worked[no updates...last one was the security updates on 2017-11-28], it still didn't work, I still had an unfixable error designated as 80248015.

I checked three=3 different windows 7 pro desktops and all gave same error and all could not be fixed with windows update troubleshooter.  I also checked, and though it says update service is not on and try to reboot.....1) rebooting did NOT help and 2) checking under windows services... the windows update service was shown to have beenStarted  [it's set to autostart]... I actually tried stopping and restarting under "Servies" and it did not help

In addition [HOPEFULLY MICROSOFT IS READING SOME OF THESE MESSAGES] this thread is the only thread that is current on this type of windows update issue.  

NET-NET , THIS APPEARS TO BE SOME SORTT OF MICROSOFT SERVER PROBLEM... AND THE SERVICE THAT IS NOT WORKING IS ON MICROSOFT SIDE.

MICROSOFT TECH ADMINISTRATOR---PLEASE RESPOND !

I am getting the same error code when trying to check for updates on my windows 7 machine!  What the heck has microsoft done now??  It's pretty annoying because now I don't know if I'm getting updates or not!

Likewise.  I suspect it has something to do with no longer giving windows 7 users the option to choose which updates they want to download, like it is with windows 10.  As you probably already know, with windows 10, microsoft stopped giving any options as to what or when updates were downloaded.  Either that, or some really unqualified geek at microsoft did something terribly wrong.  Let's hope we all get an answer on this.  It's all about control and no choices IMO.
