    Windows could not search for new updates code- 8024402C.
    I have tried many things like- turning off, windows firewall,anti-virus firewall, etc..
    I have also tried some solutions from the internet like-https://codeimprovements.wordpress.c...indows-update/

    Windows wont update error-8024402C Solved - Windows 7 Help Forums
    and some microsoft solutions,even run CC cleaner......nothing helped .
    so i finally posting a thread ,i hope there is a solution .
    i am using a lenovo laptop, Z510 i7 with windows 8.1 .i had also updated windows before in this laptop but when i opened windows updates window i found this-
    (it shows i updated never because i tried a solution in which i needed to delete a folder called -
    SoftwareDistribution folder)
