    Fix for 8024A000 Windows 8 update error?

    I have updated my system to Windows 8 already and now just wanted to run the updates for the system and when I try to do that I am getting the error message as “Error Code 8024A000 - Windows could not search for new updates”. Why this error comes up? What should I do now to fix it?

    Your system updates can fail because of various reasons. Now the first thing which you need to check is to with the recent changes which you have done. If you installed some new application then just uninstall them and restart your PC once and then check with the update.

    If that doesn’t help, just follow the steps given below,

    STEP 1: Press Windows key + Q -> To open the charms bar.

    STEP 2: Now from the search -> Type in cmd to open the command prompt.

    STEP 3: Right click on the cmd icon -> Select “Run as Administrator”.

    STEP 4: Now just type “sfc/scannow” -> Press Enter.

    This will carry on the system level scan to check if some issues are there which needs to be fixed. If still you have the issue then the better thing to do next is to call the Microsoft support and explain the problem as there will be probably a patch given from them to resolve the problem.
