Error 20000009 on Windows Update – Windows Server 2012

I was recently attempting to install SQL Server 2012 SP1 (KB2674319) via Windows Update on a VM. This is a Dev VM – specifically a new one I had built for working with SharePoint 2013 & CRM 2013. Nice new environment: Windows Server 2012, Visual Studio 2013, ReSharper 8, Dynamics CRM 2013, SharePoint 2013, and even Office 2013…heck 2013 is sounding like a great year!

Anyway, while letting Windows Update install SQL Server 2012 SP1 I kept getting the dread red install failure and an error 20000009. I did several searches but couldn’t find anything. I performed a repair on SQL Server 2012 using the install media – still no luck. It was only went I back that next day and tried to copy a large file that I received an out-of-space error. (more…)
