Hello,

I’ve an issue with Windows Update where an error is shown: “We couldn't connect to the update service. We'll try again later, or you can check now. If it still doesn't work, make sure you're connected to the Internet.”

This occurs in the following situation:
· Server get it’s update from WSUS server
· Server is activated for Microsoft Defender for Endpoints (ATP)
· All works well
· The GPO with the WSUS settings is removed
· Windows update does not work anymore

We’re using a WSUS server and we want to let our servers get their updates from Windows Update directly. I’ve removed the GPO with the WSUS settings from all our workstations and all works well on all our workstations (all Windows 10 21H1). These are intune managed and work fine!

The problem occurs when I remove the same GPO from our servers, in specific 5 servers (all Windows Server 2016 Datacenter) where Microsoft Defender for Endpoints is activated. The error is shown for the 5 servers with Microsoft Defender for Endpoints enabled (Defender ATP), for other servers without Defender ATP it works correct. Ofboarding Defender ATP and then editting the settings did not work either.

At the bottom I’ve added some rows of the Windows Update log. The common error in that is 0x80072f8f. I’ve searched a lot on the internet trying to solve this but yet was not able to. Hopefully you can point me to the right direction.

The following is what I’ve already tried and none of them solved my issue:
· Renamed C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and C:\Windows\System32\catroot2
· Removed the group policy links in the Group policy editor and ran gpupdate /force
· Removed the group policy folders on the local server and ran gpupdate /force
· Tried to temporarily overrule the GPO

Remove-Item `
  -Path HKLM:\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate `
  -Force `
  -Recurse `
  -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue;
 Stop-Service -Name wuauserv;
 Start-Service -Name wuauserv;
 (New-Object -ComObject Microsoft.Update.AutoUpdate).DetectNow();

# Executed the following commands

 dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
 dism /online /cleanup-image /checkhealth
 dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth /source:WIM:e:\sources\install.wim:4 /limitaccess
 sfc /scannow

· checked the time settings on the server which are correct and on time
· someone mentioned it could be due the lack of some root certificates, with a powershell command I’ve imported all root certificates
· Removed the configuration from Microsoft Defender for Endpoints by:
· Remove MMA agent
· Executed command

$ErrorActionPreference = "SilentlyContinue"
# Load agent scripting object
$AgentCfg = New-Object -ComObject AgentConfigManager.MgmtSvcCfg
# Remove OMS Workspace
$AgentCfg.RemoveCloudWorkspace("WorkspaceID")
# Reload the configuration and apply changes
$AgentCfg.ReloadConfiguration()

· Disabled the local firewall and in the 3-party firewall I added a rule so the server had full access to the internet
· Uninstalled Windows defender from server
· When I re-enable the GPO with the wsus settings then updates are retrieved from the WSUS server again
· In the log file there’s a line: making request with URL. When I executed this URL in a browser a cab file is successfully downloaded (HTTPS://sls.update.microsoft.com/SLS/{9482F4B4-E343-43B6-B170-9A65BC822C77}/x64/10.0.14393.0/0?CH=428&L=en-US&P=&PT=0x8&WUA=10.0.14393.4283)

I’ve installed a completely new server and added exact the same GPO’s and then the Windows Update works fine. Therefor I don’t think it has something to do with GPO’s. Can you help me to fix this issue?

    I've recreated it from a different server without luck

    Not sure what is meant here but don't do that. Delete, reboot, check for updates.

    @Joey Vldn
    Thanks for your posting on Q&A.

    I have reviewed the files you provided and I found the below error information:
    124809-8.png

    The client try to make request with Microsoft, but failed due to the security reason.

    Also I found a related link for your reference. In this thread, the MSDN Noob has resolved this issue successfully by enabling the TLS 1.2. Please have a try in your environment first. We could refer to this link to enable the TLS 1.2 on the clients.

    Hope the above will be helpful.

    Regards,
    Rita
