We aren’t able to check "NOKIA Lumia 800" for available updates right now.
Please try again later. If you need to contact support, reference error 8000ffff

Didn't find any reference to this error 8000ffff on the Nokia support site or any other mobile platform site.
Will try again later. Restarted my device but still the same error
Solved! Go to Solution.
Although all data would be lost from device you may well have to "hard reset" your Lumia 800 to resolve this issue unfortunately.
8000ffff is quite a common Windows error code.

Thanks, but a hard reset isn't necessary, luckely. Simple solution is to turn wifi on. This morning I realised that I forgot to turn wifi on yesterday. So I tried again today, same error and turned on wifi and shut the device down en up again with wifi on. Connected it to my PC and teh following result: There are no updates available for "NOKIA Lumia 800" So when Using Windows Phone 7 connector you not only connect the cable but also have to turn wifi on otherwise you get this error. I turn wifi of when I'm not in a neigbourhood of a known wireless network.
I've had the same error message when checking updates with windows phone connector for MAC. See the pasted error message below. I'm testing the Nokia Lumia 900:
