    That error code almost certainly doesn't correspond to that description. Have you tried manually downloading the files for the update? You can view the URLs for the files in the update by going to the Content Information page on the properties of the update in question. Hint: you can use CTRL + C to copy the items from the list box including the URLs and then paste into Notepad so you can extract just the URL to test the download.

    Hi @David Gómez

    Agree with Jason, we could try to download the update manually. Please navigate to content information, and in the tab of source path, we will see the url of update, refer to this picture:
