Clients Unable to update - "Cached cookie has expired or new PID is available"

Issue  -  Recently we started witnessing  that one of the site clients (specifically servers) were unable to install updates. the Client is unable to communicate to the WSUS Server. nothing shows in software Center. It gives soap, cookie, and sync errors. We're currently using SCCM 2012 R2

Error -  windowsupdate.log:

Tried  -  wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow , didn't work

Resolution -  On one of the machine , i tried following steps:

REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v SusClientId /f
REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v SusClientIdValidation /f
net stop "Automatic Updates"
move %windir%\windowsupdate.log %windir%\windowsupdate.old.log
move %windir%\SoftwareDistribution %windir%\SoftwareDistributionold
regsvr32 /s atl.dll
regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
regsvr32 /s wups.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 /s wuapi.dll
regsvr32 /s msxml3.dll
regsvr32 /s mssip32.dll
regsvr32 /s initpki.dll
regsvr32 /s softpub.dll
net start "Automatic Updates"
wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow

Leave it around 10 minutes and the shield should appear
and It did work.
Also i tried couple of steps and it did work.
move %windir%\windowsupdate.log %windir%\windowsupdate.old.log
move %windir%\SoftwareDistribution %windir%\SoftwareDistributionold
