Hi shadowboy 1795,

This error code you are getting may be due to temporary connection problem with Windows Update or Microsoft Update site.
I suggest you try the following:
1. Temporary connection-related errors may occur when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update
2. Use the fixit in Windows Update error 8024400a, 8024400d, or 8024400e.
3. Scan the system for virus.
