You wouldn't by chance have a WSUS server in the mix would you?  If you do they have to be approved on WSUS

Yes it looks like I am connected to a WSUS server I see two entries in the reg query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate  WUServer and WUStatusServer is there a way to stop this so that I can go out and get my own updates?

Should have an option to check the internet for updates on the windows update window or move the server out of the OU container that the policy applies to for WSUS.  Do a gpupdate /force and reboot.
