    Try this advice I received from Micro soft help on this isue. It worked for
    me , however it was only a Temporary fix for me and eventually went back to
    the original error message 0x8DDD0009. It did allow me to get a few more
    updates that may or may not be the ticket to get WU working again.
    MS advised to:
    I removed Norton from Add/Remove. (it had been acting up anyway).
    MS advised to rename some folders. Do this:

    Rename Windows Update Softwaredistribution folder
    1. Click START, click RUN, and type: cmd
    press enter. When prompted in new window at blinking cursor, Please type
    this command to stop Auto Update Service, type in: "net stop WuAuServ"
    (without the quotes) and press enter.
    Make sure command window says that it was successfully stopped before
    2. Click Start, click Run, and type: %windir% and press enter
    3. In the opened folder look for the folder named "Software Distribution"
    4. Right click on the folder, select Rename and type: "SDold" (without
    quotes). Press enter so changes are executed.
    5. Click Start, click Run, and type: cmd and press enter.
    type the command "net start WuAuServ (without quotes) this will restart the
    Auto Updates service again.
    Make sure you get the message this was successfully started before

    Rename CatRoot2 Folder
    1.Close all open windows
    2. Click, Start, click Run, type: %windir% and press Enter.
    3.Locate and open the System32 folder.
    4. Find the CatRoot2 folder, right click it, select Rename. Change the name
    to CR2OLD. Make sure you press enter after typing the new name, so changes
    are executed.

    Now Please test the issue again via Windows Update website. It ran several
    GOOD times for me, however Junk email Filter still took three times to
    INSTALL. However I am back to the original error message 0x8DDD0009.

    Good Luck!

    After this temp fix, I have re-set my Auto update command in control panel to
    "Notify" me of downloads and let me choode the installs. This seems to be
    working now, I will keep monitoring it and keep posting. so good.
    Downloads are good...installs successful in this mod.
