    It appears to be a Protocol Talker error.

    Either try another attempt at updating and then post the last 50 or so
    lines of the WindowsUpdate.log (WUA) or install the latest release of
    the Windows Update Agent:

    manage updates on a computer

    You'll need to stop the Windows Update service and BITS, if it's a
    started service, prior to installing the WUA.
    Restart afterwards and see if the system can update.
