Here's an uber-long listing of error codes that can help you troubleshoot your WSUS/SUS issues. I'm not sure how updated this listing is, but it's the latest one that I can find.

Just hit 'ctrl+f' in your browser to search for your error number. Normally, these numbers can be found in your %windir%\windowsupdate.log file.

There is a link at the bottom of the post if you want to download the html file. Be warned though - it's a BIG file (1.57 Mb)

Alternatively, you can download and use the WSUS Error code lookup tool:

Additional note:
