If you find an otherwise fine machine will not connect to WU with an 8007EE2 error and have probably already tried the microsoft fixit solution with no success, do try the following:
- Open regedit
- Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
- In here if use WUServer entry is 1, change it to 0, if you drill further down you’ll probably see reference to a non-existent WU server, in my case this was from reusing a lab machine from an SCCM test.
- Restart the WindowsUpdate Service from services.msc
- WU should work fine again.
Hope this helps someone else.
