When Windows Update cannot connect to the Windows Server, an “error 80244019” is thrown. One way of fixing this problem is to reset the Windows Update Components. Microsoft released Fixit 50202 mainly for resetting the Update Components. To download, click Microsoft Easy Fix 50202. This will directly download the 50202 MSI file. Once downloaded, run the program and accept the agreement to continue.

Check “Aggressive Mode” then click “Next”. Wait until it is finished and it should restart the computer automatically. After booting, check for updates again then see if it works. If this doesn’t fix it, you can download the update and install it manually. Go to the Control Panel and search for without quotes “Windows Update”. Next, click “View Update History” then get the update number.

After this, search Google for that update number then go to the Microsoft website that has the update and download it. Once downloaded, run and install it. Windows Update is a feature built-in to Microsoft Windows that is responsible for protecting the system by checking the Windows Update Server and installing the necessary updates. It operates continuously in the background checking for updates and applying them.

Because it is responsible for protecting a huge number of applications, things can go wrong due to technical and software glitches.
