Windows 7: Unable to Update Windows, run MSU files, or update .NET Framework

Unable to Update Windows, run MSU files, or update .NET Framework

I just did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium with SP1. After installing the servicing stack update (KB 3020369) and the convenience rollup (KB 3125574) Windows update searches for updates indefinitely, to no avail. I am unable to run any MSU files to update manually, they get stuck at "Searching for updates on this computer..." And I am also unable to install the .NET Framework.

Thank you, that did it. I had seen that post, I guess I missed the part about that third update.
