Error “WindowsUpdate_80244019” or “WindowsUpdate_dt000” during update your Windows.

The problem in majority of the cases is related to the wrong DNS loading. The problem itself very often happens when you are behind several routers (like one from internet connection vendor and one your WiFi router) and until you don’t flush your current DNS configuration you can try anything but you won’t be successful.
What’s really funny that’s so easy – just run the command prompt with admin rights, then run the following command:

ipconfig /flushdns

make a coffee and get back to the WU heaven 🙂
All other applications are able to deal with that – WU not. From my point of view this is a bug and I am just surprised it’s nowhere documented.

You could also register the DNS in command prompt with:

ipconfig /registerdns

and check your current DNS settings with:

ipconfig /displaydns

Hope this helps!
