Setup.exe returned error code -2146994717

I'm attempting to deploy Office 365 Updates using Office Deployment Tool (ODT). 

It is successful for some workstations. However, the install fails on some workstations with the below error

  • That's just a generic error you'll receive if the installer fails. Try doing a non-silent install locally on a machine to see which specific error is thrown out. I am receiving this exact same issue where some deployments received the error while others didn't.

    The error code I received on the installer was Error Code 30125-1011 (502) which is a network/firewall issue.

    I work for a local government and we have a geoblock set up so anything hosted outside of the US is blocked by default and needs to be whitelisted. The installer for Office was trying to pull from Hong Kong and Japan. Other installs went through on US-based servers and worked just fine.

    If you have a geoblock set up, check out where the installs are coming from on Microsoft's side.
