Windows Vista update error code 80240016

Everytime I try to install the updates that it is telling me i need, i get
the error code 80240016. I tried restarting my computer and even going to the
microsoft website to intall them manually. Nothing is working. It either
tells me that I need to install an update for windows update, which when I
try that it fails as well, or it tells me that windows update is currently
installing other updates and to try again, but it i click on try again,
nothing happens. I can't find anything anywhere on how to fix this, can
someone help me?

I am having the same issue. Did you find a solution?

No no one has helped me yet, it's still telling me at the bottom of my
computer that "window's cannot check for updates" it's getting annoying. If I
figure it out i will definately post a response.

I found a solution on the forum somewhere, but can't find the link. Anyway,
all you have to do is type sfc /scannow in the run textbox, then go and
update windows.
