Could this be a proxy/firewall issue??  It sounds as though your server cannot directly talk to Microsoft's servers.  If you use a proxy to access the Internet set up IE so that you can talk to the Internet then "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\proxycfg.exe -u", this will ensure that Windows components use the proxy as well as IE.

Hope this helps.

we do not use any proxy on our network. the internet traffic for the machines is directed via a adsl line that is not connected to any firewall.

If the server has direct access to the Internet (ie does not go via a proxy) use "proxycfg.exe -d".  If the server does need to use the proxy then you can use "proxycfg.exe -p <servername>".  "proxycfg.exe -u" imports the current settings from IE.  You can check what the system is currently using by just typing "proxycfg.exe" at a command prompt.

You could try manually navigating to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and making sure that the servers have all of the "certificate" updates installed.

Try this :

Start > Run > Services.msc

Make sure Background Intelligent Transfer Service and Automatic Updates services are started, this fixed it for me.

I just had to change the Automatic Updates parameters so updates were not installed automatically after I enabled the service.
