This update will not install through windows update, with error code 8007065E -windows update encountered an unknown error.

I'm an admin on the machine, its Windows 7 Pro, 32bit.

Windows update "Get Help with this error" link provides no further details. I've tried to run the Windows Update fix tool, this found no issues.

The event log shows a number of errors over time regarding connectivity to Windows Update service, but other updates have installed fine.

The Windows Update reset tool tells me: enter image description here

any ideas what could be wrong?
