Do you mean Windows update errors out or you can't update Windows to a newer build?

If your behind a proxy, this might help > Common Errors during Windows Vista Activation - KezNews.com

windows 7 update error 80072f8f

I tried all the suggested fixes but none worked. I have two identical PC's that i installed one after the other using the same disks 1 updated and 1 did not. I found that the working PC had been connected to the domain but when the OS asked what type of network is this I selected PUBLIC, the second PC I connected it as a business system. Having removed the second PC from my domain and reconnecting it (but this time selecting PUBLIC) the updates now work :-)

how about that something weird about a new windows operating system, I suppose we should accept it really .

hope it works for you
