The error code is in relation with the update services not working properly. One of the following methods will solve the problem,

  1. The antivirus, spyware or any other software can block the update services, so you need to exit from the antivirus or disable them for a while and then try updating again.
  2. Open command prompt and type net start bits or net start wuauserv and hit enter key.

One of the above will definitely fix this issue.
Thanks.

When you try to update Microsoft Windows using Windows Update, you may receive error code “0x8024402C” or “0x8024502D.” This error happens because there is an incorrect character in the proxy override settings. To fix the problem, click “Start,” “Control Panel,” “Network and Internet Connections” then “Internet Options.” Go to “Connections” tab then click “LAN settings” at the bottom.

On the next screen, under “Proxy server” section, click “Advanced.” In “Proxy Settings” screen, delete any entry in the “Exceptions” section then click “OK” all throughout. After this, click “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories,” and then “Command Prompt.” In the command prompt window, enter the following commands then hit Enter after every command:

proxycfg -d
net stop wuauserv
net start wuauserv

When you are finished, close the command prompt then try updating again and see if it works.
