Greetings!
As you can see in the title Windows doesn't provide me with updates due to this error. I looked it up in the Microsoft site and it says that it's because time or time zone is configured incorrectly. I tried the Windows Update troubleshooter program, I ran it several times (restarted PC several times) and it said that the problems are fixed, but it still displays the error. :ermm:
It also displays that I have never installed updates, which is false!




I tried to synchronize my time with an internet time server, but failed which is odd.




My time zone was originally UTC, but since I'm in Bulgaria my time zone has to be UTC +2. And I think since that change I cannot install updates even though I changed it back to UTC. I've thought about System Restore but I don't have any points that I can revert back to.
If you have any suggestions, please tell me!
I am still new to Windows 8.1 and I apologise if this has been answered already.

How old is the PC? Time is can be messed up if the CMOS battery has failed.

Re: Windows Update Error 80072F8F

Hi, is this what you followed Windows Update error 80072f8f - Windows Help
If so, did you also follow this part

Note

If your time zone observes daylight saving time and you want your computer's clock to be adjusted automatically when daylight saving time changes, on the Date and Time tab, click Change time zone, and then make sure that the Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time check box is selected.

Re: Windows Update Error 80072F8F

Yes you are correct that is the site, and it is already set for daylight configuration even before the problem occurred.

Try this

Right click your clock on the taskbar and click on Adjust date/time
Click on the internet time tab and then the Change settings button
In the server field remove the default entry and enter pool.ntp.org
Hit Update now and you should get a confirmation saying that Windows has updated the time
Click Ok twice

Re: Windows Update Error 80072F8F

Sorry for the delay.

Error 80072F8F indicates that there is something wrong the SSL connection between WU and the MS server. This can be caused by the time being wrong on your computer

On the System tray right click on the Time -> Adjust date/time -> Internet time -> Change settings
-Make sure Synchronize with an Internet Time Server is ticked
-Select Server: time.windows.com

Click on Update Now -> Wait until it says "The clock was successfully synchronized with time.windows.com
