System: Windows Home Server
Browser: IE8
WUA: Windows Update Agent 7.2.6001.788 - Installed 10/21/2009 via
Automatic Updates (Note this was the last update installed.)

I am unable to update my system due the error listed in the subject. The
page displays the following message:

"The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are
trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem."

The Automatic Update control panel indicates that the Automatic Updates
service is enabled and set to "Automatic (recommended)". The Services
management tool indicates that the service is "Started".

However the Microsoft Updates page directs me to enable the AU service.

Note: There are no related errors in the event logs.

I've tried the following:

Disable "Microsoft Updates" => "Windows Updates" fails the same way and
indicates that AU should be enabled.

Reinstalling the Windows Update Agent => "WUA is already installed. No
changes made."

Removing the contents of %WINDIR%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore
REGSRV => No difference in observable behavior

Please disregard this post as I have resolved the issue. I executed the
following in a cmd window:

C:\>windowsupdateagent30-x86.exe /?

This produced the following help information:

/wuforce
/quiet
/norestart

I ran the installer with the /wuforce option and that resolved the issues
detailed below.

Re: Error number: 0x8002802B

Thank you for providing the steps. Your replay helped me resolve th
EXACT error in Windows XP. I have been on a Support Call wit
Microsoft, and it was not going anywhere, just a lot of diagnosi
information that I was asked to run and some very basic steps to try.
But your reply was the one that helped.

My Error:
==>
OS: Windows XP Media Center Edition
Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.090804-1435 : Service Pack 3)

[Error number: 0x8002802B]
The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page yo
are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve th
problem.

I confirm once again that your steps of re-installing Windows Updat
Agent works for the above Error very well.

The download link for the Windows Update Agent is:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949104

I've been fighting this same "Error number: 0x8002802B" issue for forever,
have tried all the other fixes and nothing seemed to help...

That is until today with your /wuforce suggestion. That worked like a charm!
Finally my MS Update is happy and working again.

Thank you again for posting this.

Thank you! Worked great. I have had this problem for a while, and this
fixed it!
Brilliant. After trying multiple solutions (including Microsoft's FixIt
tool), this is the one that got Windows Update working again for me.

Assuming you're not running WHS & to avoid confusion, please begin a new
thread about your specific problem and computer. State your IE version and
full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2; Vista SP1; Vista
64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) in your first post.
