Symantec A/V - can't update "Common Client"

    Recently bought a copy of Norton Internet Security 2003 (yes, "2003",
    got it in retail box very cheap never registered). Installed on a PC
    running W2k and started doing updates. Most items updated just fine but
    I can't fully update Program Updates because every time I try to install
    the available update it says it has to update "Symantec Common Client"
    first. But there's NO OPTION to update Symantec Common Client under
    LiveUpdate. I uninstalled everything and did a fresh install of the
    program, intending to update Symantec Common Client first, before any
    other update. But once again, there is NO OPTION to update Symantec
    Common Client. No check box for it at all. What's going on here? Am I
    stuck? I have other computers still running NIS 2003 that I pay an
    annual fee to update the subscription and the program seems to work just
    fine. Why won't this one work?
