Failure Configuring Windows Updates. It commonly appears on older versions of windows, like windows vista , 7, and 8, and stops the update process. Windows update can fail during the updates installation if the updates began to be installed during a shutdown operation of your computer.
The failure configuring error is sometimes caused by the faulty files in your windows update cache. First, i have started windows update onws2k8r2, and during update virtual machine was running out of space, after that i have cleaned 30 gb of space and again started vm, but during this message failure configuring windows updates reverting. I've done a clean install of windows 2 weeks ago, and got 235 updates yesterday, it took roughly 2.5 hours to download them all.
