Error code 80070714 or 8024400D

If you get the error code 80070714 (0x80070714)running Windows Update, or error code 8024400D (0x8024400D) running Windows Update with "Microsoft Update" enabled try this.

Error code 80072ee2

I found the following description in the help. I haven't figured out how to add these sites to the Windows Firewall, but if I stop the Windows Firewall Windows Update works fine.

Windows Update error 80072ee2

If you receive Windows Update error 80072ee2 while checking for updates, you might need to add the website addresses from which Windows Update downloads updates to your firewall exceptions or "allow" list.

To add the Windows Update websites to a firewall exceptions list Windows Firewall ships with this version of Windows and should already include these sites in the exceptions list. If you use a different firewall, refer to the software publisher's help to see how to add these websites to your firewall exceptions list:

http://*.update.microsoft.com

https://*.update.microsoft.com

http://download.windowsupdate.com

If the problem persists after you have followed the steps above, see this Knowledge Base article on the Microsoft Help and Support website or go to the Windows Update Support Center website to request support by e‑mail.
