To tackle this one, you have to set the following registry setting:

After that, your update will download, but takes about 1 or 2 hours to download, because it will try to make use of the setting “Delivery Optimize”.
*FAILED* [80D03002] DO download failed [Extended: 0], falling back to BITS and retrying with new Download Job.”

To make this process faster you can change the following policy to bypass, everything should work again.
