Just received MS cert refurbished Lenovo 530--
First time running Windows update, just sits w/'Checking for updates' and times out after an hour or so with 8024A006 error.
Tried renaming \Windows\SoftwareDistribution per Google search--no change.
At this point it's simpler to reinstall from recovery partition than test a lot of possibilities absent a probable solution--unless for some weird reason I'm going to run into the same problem.
That's why I'm here.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I think it's a Microsoft issue... I had the same issue before. Try downloading all the updates off line.
#4 or 5 would be good bets, and you can Slipstream your installation disk at the same time....
