    Google does so:


    You may receive an "Error 0x80072EE2," "Error 0x80072EE7," "Error 0x80072EFD," "Error
    0x80072F76," or "Error 0x80072F78" error message when you try to use the Windows Update
    Web site or the Microsoft Update Web site

    Any firewalls that could be blocking WU?

    Try this as well:
