Error 80246002 when clicking 'chek for updates'

Setting to automatic and updates are installing fine, but manual results in 80246002 (see attachment), problem here started yesterday (and tested it on a 100% fresh w7 install, same result. Any troubleshooting I tried failed. W8 no problems). Anyone else here with the same problem?

A quick google gave many results, something is going on.

I am getting this same error after installing an update last night. I guess this is OK then?

There certainly is. As posted my machine seems to be OK now.

I think what you have to do is to make sure that Windows Module in services is set to manual and that Automatic Updates are turned off. I set mine to notify and download but do not install. As I said it seems to be OK now as I can get to WU.

Yes, that works, it's clicking 'check' that fails.

Also removed KB 29936591, among trying many other things, still getting the error.
What I find quite interesting is this

and it produces the error there as well. For 'fun', restored an image from many weeks ago and... refuses to do any manual update. I'd tend to think the error is on MS server side or something thereabout.

Probably, MS too engulfed in their w8 Disneyworld (tile-store-world) that they don't have resources or (wo)manpower to maintain windows7 properly, or it's intended, to scare people over to 8 lol+++

^^^ no 2982791 here, and 'check' fails with or without 2993651.

Indeed, quickly filling up with posts. Seems one can safely assume there is no user or pc error involved. FTM setting update to 'Check for updates and let me choose', and wait for MS to come up with a fix for the manual check error.
