Re: Microsoft update fails. Error 0x80242006
0x80242006 WU_E_UH_INVALIDMETADATA A handler operation could not be completed because the
update contains invalid metadata.

RE: Microsoft update fails. Error 0x80242006
Also in the the post from 1/27/2008 I entered the following solution:

I just fixed this with the help of a german countryman IT-freak. You need to
empty the SoftwareDistribution folder before reattempting an update. This is
how:

Open the command window by entering "cmd" in the windows>start>command line.
In the window popup, behind the prompt enter "net stop wuauserv" to stop
automatic updating features. Messages will appear confirming this.
Then (if you like, exit the command window by entering "exit" and then
open the windows folder, look for and empty (or delete) the folder
"SoftwareDistribution". Don't worry, it reinstalls itself with "cleaned
contents".
Next go back to (or restart) the command window and enter "net start
wuauserv" to restart updating features. Messages will appear confirming this.
Then behind the prompt enter
"wuauclt/resetauthorization/detectnowwuauclt/detectnow". No additional
message will appear this time. Exit the command window by entering "exit".
Now the windows update or microsoft update will be completed successfully.

Regards from Germany
