  3. 1.) Shutdown (not pause) any active VMs.
    2.) Kill any snapshots

    Try again. If still failing, post in windowsupdate NG.

  4. What if the snapshots are important and need to be kept?,...does that mean
    it becomes impossible to apply an SP to 2008?

  5. As long as all VMs are shutdown, it should be possible to apply. That being
    said, I prefer a non-snapshot state for any major upgrade.

    You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use Windows
    Update or Microsoft Update to install updates

    Translation: Cannot connect to the Internet server

    and most likely have read also -

    There's a possibility that either a 3rd party firewall, anti-spyware
    program, web accelerator, Internet security/antivirus program and/or a proxy
    server is interfering with the Windows Update Services (SVCHOST) accessing
    the Internet.

    Suggest adding the Windows Update website addresses to exceptions/allow list

    If that hasn't help, check that the Windows Update Service can connect to
    the Internet through port 80 and port 443.

    You may need to refer to the individual programs documentation for further

    When accessing the Update site, you receive the 0x80072EE2 or 0x80072EFD
