New secure WSUS Server - Error while installing update 0x80244018

Hi,

I am pretty new in the WSUS world.
I am trying to set up a new WSUS server for my company.

Installation went well. I configurated it with a PKI certificate on SSL connection.
I have created the groups (on WSUS) and a GPO to go through.

The machine I want to update does appear.
When I want to update I get the following error 0x80244018 on all updates... And the updates goes on Error (Red) in WSUS.

Did I screw up the installation / configuration ?

What are the test I can do to figure it out ?

Thank you in advance,
Best Regards,
Jon

    @Jonathan Tonelli
    Thanks for your posting on Q&A.

    It is a standalone WSUS in your environment and there is no MECM in your environment.(The WSUS role has been integrated into the MECM) Am I right?

    When I want to update I get the following error 0x80244018 on all updates... And the updates goes on Error (Red) in WSUS.
    Here is an explanation for this error code:
    0x80244018 -2145107944 WU_E_PT_HTTP_STATUS_FORBIDDEN Same as HTTP status 403 - server understood the request, but declined to fulfill it.

    According to the error code, it seems that the SSL configuration isn't correct. Please follow the below link to configure the SSL:
