Thats MS for you! :-)
Try searching for the updates in the windows catalogue, with an addition of "administrative download".. then you can save them locally and install them from there.

although this did not solve my problem directly it did help me find the issue.   Thank you... the problem was no disk space on drive c.   I had an application generating log files that were never purged.   Thanks again...
