Error code 80070490 in Windows Update when doing 'Check for Update

I noticed my last check for updates was from a while back, so I ran Check for
Updates, which told me "Windows could not search for new updates" and
returned error code 80070490 in the window.

I don't seem to find anything applicable about this error code.

Sugestions?

Codes are often useless without their context in the log.

Also, besides searching for the hex value, search for both the hex value
prefixed by 0x, e.g. 0x80070490 and search for the decimal equivalent
of the lower half, e.g. 1168.

Then in a cmd window you can find out what the code "means"

<cmd_output>
>net helpmsg 1168


Element not found.
</cmd_output>


QED.
