All of a sudden it will not work to update the clients with THIRD-party updates, get error code 800B0109 in Windows Update, and in CSI (CSI WSUS Configuration Wizard), I get this error: The CSI WSUS Group Policy exists, but is not valid - please check Secunia CSI FAQ.
What do I need to do, to get this working?

800B0109 points to the fact that the WSUS self signed certificate is not present on the host, or is present but invalid(see blog post : http://secunia.com/blog/327/ ) or a setting is missing in the administrative template for Windows update, “allow installation of locally published packages” that needs to be set and distributed by the “WSUS-CSI” GPO.
If you get an error when using the CSI WSUS Configuration Wizard in regards to the creation of the GPO, it’s best that you verify the settings manually, you can do this by following the guidelines in our technical user manual : http://secunia.com/?action=fetch&filename=Secunia_...
On the failing client, your first step should be to check the validity and presence of the certificate:
- open the MMC, insert the certificate snapshot, and open Trusted root certification Authorities /Trusted publishers, locate the WSUS self signed certificate and doubleclick it, now have a look at the details and public key, this should be an RSA 2048bits, if lower then follow the recommendations in the blog post above.
If the certificate is correct and added to Trusted root certification authorities as well as Trusted publishers, then have a look at the GPO, likely settings are missing and the link above will point out which settings need to be in place.
If you have verified all points above and you still encounter problems you are more then welcome to contact our Customer Support Center.
