    After reading all the "helpful messages" and opening ports, adding microsoft
    to trusted sites in firewall, etc, I went to and searched for the update code. Then I
    downloaded the file that pertained to my system, and installed it manually.

    I know, someone else mentioned a manual install, but it was not explained
    what that meant... so I am doing that here.

    Good luck to you all - none of the suggestions aside from manual download
    (which does not require repeat internet access during installation!) worked
    for me...
