Error 0x80080008


So, Today I saw error 0x80080008 in “%Windir%\WindowsUpdate.log”.

DnldMgr FATAL: DM:CBitsJob::SetCallbackHandler: SetNotifyInterface failed with 0x80080008.

and eventually Download Manager failed. Looking at “%Windir%\WindowsUpdate.log” I saw the following statement – AU AU Restart required…. Also, I could see downloads in “%Windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Download” folder.

Looking at the Event Log, I realized the computer was rebooted and Automatic Updates Service was set to MANUAL and obviously stopped.

I immediately restarted the service and forced update detection and the error is gone.

DnldMgr Download manager restoring 2 downloads
Agent   * Succeeded to load 2 persisted download calls
DnldMgr Retrieved 2 persisted download jobs
DnldMgr   * Restored download job.

The computer succesfully updated.
