Is the WSUS using the same IP and Hostname as it always has?
Has there been any changes to the internal FireWall?
Can you contact the WSUS server via a ping command?

Also, check the event logs on the WSUS server and check the "Windows Update Logs.txt" located on the client PC's to see what the error's are? I have included a batch file that will force the client PC (run it from the client) to reach out to the WSUS Server. I have to rename the batch file to txt, just save it and rename it from txt to cmd.

From here http://www.expta.com/2008/06/fix-for-self-update-is-not-working-in.html
To fix the issue, follow these steps:

Open IIS Manager and ensure there is a Selfupdate virtual directory in the Default Web Site. If not, create it with the Local Path pointing to C:\Program Files\Update Services\Selfupdate

Click the Directory Security tab and ensure that Anonymous Access is allowed

Restart IIS

Verify that the problem is fixed by running the following command at the command prompt:C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools\wsusutil.exe checkhealth
 
 
Sometimes a simple reinstall also solves this
