      Hello, your help would be appreciated very much!

      Does anybody know what causes this error? It says something about “StoreAgentScanForUpdatesFailure0″
      Windows logs are literally flooded with these errors every 5-15 minutes approx.

      So I disabled Store updates. We are domain users, so MS Store does not work anyway…

      Config
      PC Dell Latitude 7490, Dell Optiplex 7060 and older, all from Dell.
      Win10 Enterprise/Pro, Winver 1803 17134.706
      Domain users, WSUS for upgrading.
      Sophos for WIN Pro, Defender for WIN Enterprise.

      Hi, Doriel:

      (disclaimer) I’m not an expert so I poked around for the error in your post and found this:

      https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/sus/2011/08/29/windows-update-clients-unable-to-receive-updates-with-error-8024402c/

      and:

      and:

      I don’t know if it will help (hope so) p.s. how’s the weather in .cz?

        hi again Doriel,

        hoping you found a fix, you are a sys admin? and probably know about this tool?

        https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/app_crash_view.html

        or something better? i see lots of similar problems on google around the app store and i’m hoping you have solved the problem and moved on to greener pastures…

        i just spent an inordinate amount of time looking for this:

        sudo mkdir /mnt/sd3
        sudo mkdir /mnt/sd5
        sudo mount /dev/sdb3 /mnt/sd3
        sudo mount /dev/sdb5 /mnt/sd5

        and this:

        sudo cp -p /mnt/sd5/boot/grub/grub.cfg /mnt/sd3/boot/grub/

        so i could finishing a custom linux install

        cheers!

          Hello friends,
          weather is good, coffee is black and hot ūüôā

          I went through several computers and I found, that this error
          “StoreAgentScanForUpdatesFailure0″
          is literally everywhere. I tried to disable Store, I changed group policies to disable updates. still no success ūüôĀ (see post https://techloris.com/prevent-windows-10-automatic-updates/)

          Maybe it is just in our domain, never the less, computers are running, I just hope this wont become a problem.

          Toy our linux questons.. I do it this way:
          I download linux ISO (Mint, Fedora, Ubuntu), create bootable USB flash in Rufus (https://rufus.ie/. Then I run the “live version” from USB and Install from Linux itself. No need to sudo during installation.

      well, maybe someone here has wrestled with your problem and can give you definitive advice on a good fix? the error pointed to the clock, however; with windows who really knows? glad the coffee is on and the weather is too. my father-in-law walked out of .cz in 1948 and came to NYC.

      also, thank you for the linux info, i use mkusb from sudodus and got to the part for cutting the grub out of sdb5 and moving it to sdb3 (and got stuck). the stick will boot to most any computer, (bios\uefi) and has ntfs storage…

      happy trails!

        Update:

        Errors are not present anymore, I set up group policy for our users – I changed key for everyone:

        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\WindowsStore\WindowsUpdate\AutoDownload

        To value 2 (disabled)

        Note: I had to split path to key in order to display cocrectly

        You can try to set manually via Windows Store itself (screenshot), but for me, that didnt solve the issue. I suggest to edit your registry via regedit.exe = press WIN+R, then type regedit

        find key mentioned above and set value to 2.
        Hope this will help.
