Windows could not search for new updates error: Server 2008 R2

Problem:  When trying to run Microsoft Windows updates on my Windows Server 2008 machine, I would get the following error:  “ Windows could not search for new updates”  No matter what I tried, it would not connect to Windows update….  I was able to update in the past but it all of a sudden started to fail…

Solution:  My time zone was wrong.  Got switched to Pacific instead of Mountain… once I changed it back, I was able to connect and update.
