WSUS: The Update Could Not Be Found

I was re-installing the WSUS role on our security server (W2008 R2) today and hit this error as soon as the installation started:
“The update could not be found”.
It’s a bit of a weird one for a role installation.  I hadn’t the foggiest so I did a quick search and found the
Delete the “WindowsUpdate” key from the registry at HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows.  I’d recommend you export this to a .reg file to be safe.
Restart the Windows Update service.

Now you can go ahead and install WSUS.
