SCCM Failed to download updates to the WUAgent datastore. Error = 0x80246002.

SCCM Failed to download updates to the WUAgent datastore. Error = 0x80246002. This problem may appear with 3rd party updates from SCUP.

The first log to look at is wuahandler.log, you can saw this error:

Failed to download updates to the WUAgent datastore. Error = 0x80246002.

0x80246002 refers to A download manager operation could not be completed because the file digest was not recognized.

So next step is to look at UpdatesHandler.log:

Failed to initiate install of WSUS updates, error = 0x80246002
Failed to start batch install through WSUS Install handler , error = 0x80246002

Next to look at windowsupdate.log, that may has same errors as above.

First try re-distribute the content to DP ,delete the existing deployment and re-create the deployment.

If isssue still persist try next steps:

1. Open SCUP console, go to Publications, look at the folder that has 3rd party updates (like Java). Select the folder, click on Publish on the top;

2. During the publish option, select the following Sign All ,click Next, Next and Close. Check SCUP.log for any errors;

3. Go back to SCCM console ,perform software update synchronization, check wsyncmgr.log;

4. After the synchronization success, re-download 3rd party updates to package;

5. Delete the existing deployments because client must re-download the new package that you download now. Else client will follow the old content that was stored in ccmcache and it will keep failing;

6. After you delete and re-create the deployments, initiate the machine policy (using client notification for clients) to download the new policy;

7. Login to one of the problematic client, open Software Center, install the updates manually. Check logs (wuahandler.log, updatesdeployment.log, updatehanlder.log, windowsupdate.log).

NOTE: After all this steps the issue with 3rd party updates must disappear.
