Working Ok for me,Probably Firewall or cookie problem,Try Closing your Firewall, then run it See If that works,Or this one If you have Windows Defender running, Turn that off and try,It would not let me open Internet Explorer the other night,Found out that was the culprit,And switched it off,

Managed to get it to update at last. Probably just been stubborn.

My wife just had the same problem. I updated my computer - no problem. She got the message that the server wasn't ready. I re-tried a couple of times. She had Outlook Express running, minimised, at the time. I shut it down and opened a Firefox window. When I tried again, it worked.

Was Outlook Express stopping the update? Did opening a Firefox window help 'clean the pipes' with the internet connection? Was this just a coincidence? I don't know, but either/both would be worth a try if you can't get the update.
