Windows Update Error 80244018

Today I had issues patching a Windows Server 2008 R2 server at one of my clients.  Windows Update provided me with the following error message:

A error occurred while checking for new updates for your computer.
Error Code 80244018

This error code is generated when a computer has issues connecting to the Windows Update server.  My customer used Threat Management Gateway as a firewall solution.  After reviewing the firewall rules there was a rule which prevented access to Microsoft Windows Update servers.

Removed the rule and problem resolved.
