This is happening to me too. And no one seems to know a fix. –  rockr101 Jul 21 '12 at 17:55
@tijybba Hi, I did that with Update manager with no luck –  Mohamed Tarek Jul 21 '12 at 17:56
Have you checked your Internet connection? –  Mitch Jul 21 '12 at 18:21
@Mitch My connection is fine I guess as I can browse the Internet fine –  Mohamed Tarek Jul 21 '12 at 18:36
