can't help you with why it happening but you can goto windows web site and download (sp1) that should give you most of the updates .

See this page, try out the steps one by one. In particular scroll down and look at the 3 advanced troubleshooting methods.

You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates

if nothing helps, run a sfc scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

or eventually, a repair install.
