Windows Update in Windows 7 starts throwing up 80248015 error

Windows 10 Update defer updates

A growing number of users are now reporting an issue with Windows Update at the moment - specifically error 80248015.

SOME USERS of Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system are complaining that Windows Update has gone to Borksville.

When Windows 7 users attempt to run Windows Update on their machines, they are greeted with a message which says, "Windows Update can not now check for updates because the service is not running". You can, however, try to fix Windows 7 error 80248015 by following some workarounds. Once you do that, Windows 10 will start downloading the cumulative updates.

Apparently, restarting the computer does not resolve the issue, and you may still come across the error message if you have downloaded updates on your computer recently. Windows Update encountered an unknown error. He suggests, based on a user report on his Ask Woody website, that Microsoft may have missed updating the Expiry Date of a file, and that this may be the cause for the update issues. The file is authorization.xml located in c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\AuthCabs\authcab.cab. A detailed thread about the issue is open on Microsoft Answers forum where many have reported the error. It is unclear if all Windows 7 systems are affected by the issue, or if only a subset of systems are affected.

Thirty-six people die in listeriosis outbreak in SA
The Western Cape had reported 71 cases, followed by KwaZulu-Natal with 37 cases. Tips to avoid listeriosis, according to the World Health Organisation.

Since rebooting the system doesn't resolve the issue, Ghacks suggests disabling "Give me updates for Microsoft products and check for new optional Microsoft software when I update Windows" in the settings to temporarily fix the issue.

Navigate to: System and Security - Windows Update - Change Settings - Choose how Windows can install updates.

Needless to say, Microsoft shouldn't have let that happen, but the date-related aspect means that there is an easy fudge to get around the problem: simply wind your system date back to before December 3. Microsoft has yet to provide a patch or fix for this particular bug.
