I activated updates via WSUS for several Windows workstations

I have several updates that do not work (Code 80244019)

Can you tell me how to resolve the problem?

    When you encounter the error code 80244019, it usually means that the client was unable to get updates from the WSUS server. This can be caused by a variety of reasons, including network issues, incorrect service status issues. Here are some steps to resolve it:

    Check service status: Make sure that the relevant Windows Update service is running. You can run the following command in the command prompt to reset the service:

    net stop wuauserv

    net stop cryptSvc

    net stop bits

    net stop msiserver

    ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

    ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 catroot2.old

    net start wuauserv

    net start cryptSvc

    net start bits

    net start msiserver

    Check the network connection: Confirm that the client computer can connect to the WSUS server normally. Check that the DNS settings are correct, and that the client computer can resolve the address of the WSUS server.

    Run Windows Update Troubleshooter: Run the Windows Update Troubleshooter tool on the affected workstation and it can automatically detect and fix some common issues.

    Redetect updates: After performing the above steps, you can run the wuauclt /detectnow command on the client computer to cause the client to retest updates to the WSUS server.

    I hope you the information above is helpful.

    Best Regards,

    Windows 7 is out of support. Windows 7 had 3 years of ESU support and all 3 years ended by January 2023 (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-client/windows-7-eos-faq/windows-7-extended-security-updates-faq#what-are-the-coverage-dates-for-the-three-windows-7-esu-skus-)

    Windows 7 also went through a change from the initial release to last released CU due to the expiring of SHA1 hashing and other security issues.

    From a Windows 7 RTM ISO, you need to run

    1. Step 1 - Windows6.1-KB3050265-x64.msu
    2. Step 2 - Windows6.1-KB3020369-x64.msu
    3. Step 3 - windows6.1-kb3125574-v4-x64_2dafb1d203c8964239af3048b5dd4b1264cd93b9.msu
    4. Step 4 - Windows6.1-KB3172605-x64.msu
    5. Step 5 - windows6.1-kb4284826-x64_9e172f5bb50206dd65d4f60ac07a82baa1aef525.msu
    6. Step 6 - Latest & LAST CU for Windows 7 before ESU

    You should AVOID Windows 7 use at all costs now that it is totally out of support. If it ran on Windows 7, it will run on Windows 10 and 11.
