    Have a look in the Windows folder for this file, WindowsUpdate.log . It may have further information regarding the error.

    Was this the site whoes Error Guide you were following? http://www.updatexp.com/0x800A138F.html

        There is a common problem with Windows XP Service Pack 2 when running Windows Update.

        The fix I have found is.

        Code:
        sc sdset wuauserv D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;PU),
        I have this in a batch file to run whenever this problem occurs.
