What's your internet connection at the time? I find that I often get this error because of being on a USB G3 dongle - every time my IP changes, and some of the time when the link speed changes but not the IP, it breaks the link with the server, and I get a timeout error from WU. Switching to a DSL line immediately resolves the issue.
