0x87d00244 The object or subsystem has not been initialized

So you have a client that is running several days behind on SCEP updates.  It can see the updates and the machine is working but when you run the Software Updates Deployment Evaluation Cycle you see this:


The error you find is (0x87d00244) Updates will not be made available.  This points to a subsystem not ready.  Could it be Windows Update agent is broken.  First check to see the state of the machine:  Running Windows Update we see the machine is in a pending reboot state:

The machine would really like to run the SCEP update but other updats are pending a process. Restart the box, see if will install the updates.
