Under the miniscule prism

Error 0x8024402C

Windows Update Error 8024402C
Failure to Install Updates – "Unspecified Error"
Error 8024402C
Uncanny as it may seem after I resolved the error for 8024402F, I ended up with another error. Just as the previous error it was an unspecific error that I couldn’t find any exact interpretation. Although, it was also easy to resolve.
