Windows Update probs...

Its been awhile since I could update XP Pro through WU. I think it started about mid-way through July, Pre SP2 install. I get an error message saying:

[Error number: 0x80072EE2]
Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the requested page. You may find the following resources helpful in resolving the problem:
For self-help options:

Windows Update Response Center

Windows Update Troubleshooter

Windows Update Newsgroups
For assisted support options:

Microsoft Online Assisted Support (no-cost for Windows Update issues)
"Microsoft Online Assisted Support" is no help at all. I understand that there are no new updates since SP2, but why am I getting this message?
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
