Are you getting Windows Update Error 8024402F? I got Error 8024402F in Windows Update after upgrading my Laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 8.
I ran the Microsoft Windows Update FixIt and that didn’t help either. It turns out to fix the Windows Update Error 8024402F is to first go to services and stop the Windows Update service. Once the service is stopped you can then go to %windir% (This is normally C:\windows) and look for a folder called and rename the folder called “SoftwareDistribution” to “SoftwareDistribution.OLD”. Once that is done you will need to re-start the Windows Update service and then re-try Windows Update.
This is how I got rid of the Windows Update error 8024402F on Windows 8. Hope this helps!
