    I noticed my last check for updates was from a while back, so I ran Check for
    Updates, which told me "Windows could not search for new updates" and
    returned error code 80070490 in the window.

    I don't seem to find anything applicable about this error code.

    Well, Paul, your reply does not help much...

  4. Codes are often useless without their context in the log.

    Also, besides searching for the hex value, search for both the hex value
    prefixed by 0x, e.g. 0x80070490 and search for the decimal equivalent
    of the lower half, e.g. 1168.

    Then in a cmd window you can find out what the code "means"

    Element not found.
