Try getting the newest Automatic update client, perhaps yours is busted.

If that still doesn't work Microsoft was offering free update cds. I think they still are if you look around on their site.

A couple of other thoughts...........
1. Is your system clock working?
2. Get the Belarc Advisor, run it and check your MS update history down the bottom left of the report. I have come across updates that have failed for some reason. They seem to be available, but won't actually work until you uninstall the failed version.
