Windows Update Error

First time I've seen any issues when trying to use Windows Update. Every once in a while, I go in and manually check for updates. It's always worked fine, but today I received an error. I've tried over and over again, but no go. Anyone with any ideas? Running 7232 x64.

Try a repair, or go into Command (run as admin) and type "sfc/ scannow"

+1, I would also look to reset your Internet Explorer settings as WU uses IE (to an extent) to access the internet.

Make sure your AV isn't blocking it too

Edit: Here is the MS support page for that error

You bring up a good point. How are you doing the updates?
Are you doing them from IE? Another Browser? Or do you go to the built in Windows Updates utility and use that?

I'm sure i've read somwhere that even the built in WU uses settings from IE to access the Update server but don't quote me on that

Possible. I only ask because it may make a difference.
I don't know myself. Haha.

I haven't had any updates since I left 7100 behind.
Should I have?
