Windows Update error 80248015 on Windows 7 affecting many users

I've also seen some with Windows Server 2008 reporting this same problem on Twitter.

"Windows Update can not now check for updates because the service is not running". A detailed thread about the issue is open on Microsoft Answers forum where many have reported the error.

The problematic file is found in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\AuthCabs\authcab.cab that contains an XML file called authorization.xml set to expire on 12/3/2017 at 11:59:25 PST.

Windows 7 Error Log for Error 80248015

Windows Updates can be delayed by visiting: Local Computer Policy Computer Configuration Administrative Templates Windows Components Windows Update Windows Update for Business "Select when Preview Builds and Feature Updates are received". We'll be updating this article is Microsoft issues an official fix or statement. "You may need to restart your computer" when checking for updates on Windows 7 machines.

Apparently, changing the system's date to one that is older than 03.12.2017 fixes the issue temporarily, but the only other option that Windows 7 users appear to have at this point is to wait for Microsoft to publish an update that corrects the issue.

While it may have been an oversight by the company, this isn't the first time that Microsoft is making the lives of Windows 7 users a little too messy.

Mary Jo Foley from ZDNet reported a different error, " Windows could not search for new updates". While the error may be caused by system administrators disabling Windows Update functionality, this is apparently not the case for the current issue.

This is all rather odd, primarily because Microsoft is supporting Windows 7 until January 2020.
