For some reason, my Windows Update feature of 8.1 is no longer functioning. It was acting up prior to the Spring Update, but after manually installing I was finally able to connect to Microsoft servers and download several needed updates. This morning I went to check to see if there were any new updates, and lo and behold - I am getting the same error and the Update Feature is no longer working again. I get a "WindowsUpdate 80240442" error code. I have scoured the web for fixes, but it looks like the only solution Microsoft is offering up is to do a refresh of your PC to fix the problem. This just doesn't seem like a fix to me. Does anyone know why this is happening to me? I have turned off all the Windows Firewalls, connected my PC directly to my cable modem, all with no luck. Am I going to be forced to do a full wipe and have to reinstall all my applications?
