Windows updates have become a pain point recently, at least for me. Today, Windows prompted me to download some new Windows updates. On clicking, It started searching for updates. After some time it threw windows update 80244008 error cannot find any updates. What is wrong?
Windows Update 80244008 Cannot Find Updates
There are two reasons as to why the system is behaving in such a manner and is unable to find/download/install Windows Updates. The first reason is that maybe your third-party antivirus is interfering with the update process and blocking something in the background.
The second and more prevalent reason behind this problem is a previous update, namely KB4025336. This update uses and therefore blocks the ports that Windows uses for accessing the internet for Windows Updates. Therefore, this causes network issues. The solution is to either download the updates in a clean boot or uninstall the KB update and then download these new updates.
