Please see this article regarding the problem:

Firewall Stopping Windows Update From working

That article mentions Zone Alarm as being the problem but I am sure that any other firewall could possibly be blocking Windows update.

Also, this article has been known to solve the problem too:

WinUpdate indicates software needs to be updated

If you do the steps in the article directly above, then try this from a command prompt:

net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
net start wuauserv

Other than that, do you have Trusted ActiveX Controls enabled in IE?

Hi there mate - i have had this problem on a pc at work.
Unfortunately i dont have a "fix" at the moment , but i do have a "work around"

when you get to the page you posted above click on the link on the left hand side that says "administrator options" then click on the link that comes up which is called " Windows Update Catalog" (or clickhere ) , then click on the link on the left called " Windows Update" this will then take you to the old windows update site.

Hope it helps
