0x80240016 WU_E_INSTALL_NOT_ALLOWED
Operation tried to install while another installation was in progress or
the system was pending a mandatory restart.

Does the issue occur when searching for, downloading, or, installing
updates ?

Error message when you try to install updates from the Windows Update
Web site or from the Microsoft Update Web site: "0x80240016"
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957307

The above KB article suggests that you Stop and Start the Windows Update
service. Although I fail to see how that resolves the issue, suggest you
first give it a shot.
