    I reinstalled Windows XP to a laptop and installed the unofficial SP4 to get updated quickly. (The CD is SP2).

    But, there's a few more to get from the Windows Update, so I click Windows Update, Internet Explorer opens and after it looks for any available updates, I get a error code 0x80244019. According to Reddit, this is a 404 Not Found error. Also according to Reddit, it might be because of Microsoft retiring content encrypted with SHA-1. Hence, Windows XP updates are longer available through Microsoft Update. (That yellow shield hasn't popped up either.)

    I guess I'm posting this here because I want to ask if anyone else is unable to see updates on the Microsoft Update website.
    Here's a picture of what I'm talking about:

    Thanks guys for your help. I downloaded the updates from 2017 and 2019 that I don't think SP4 covers from the catalog, and I followed flavallee's guide, which also fixed a problem I was having with my webcam. I've gotta be able to use Zoom in this day and age!

    Thanks again!
