Failed to Add Update Source for WUAgent of type (2) and id ({GUID}). Error = 0x80004005

Mar 22, 2016 | | Say something

I had a couple of sccm clients that would display the error below in the Wuahandler.log and would not install any updates as it could not complete the Software Update scans.

Failed to Add Update Source for WUAgent of type (2) and id ({GUID}). Error = 0x80004005

To resolve the issue we need to reset the machine group policy on the local computer as described below

Solution:

  1. Rename the Registry.pol fileĀ (Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine)
  2. Re-run the Software Updates Scan Cycle in the Configmgr Actions tab or from the Console right click tools.
  3. Monitor the WUAHandler.log for progress
