    I run into this problem every time I try to update. Try updating on a different computer, that is what works for me. By chance are you jailbroken?

    I think it has something to do with being jailbroken. I am absolutely sure another computer works.

    I fixed this by removing the cydia redirect lines from my hosts file.

    yeah this happened on my friends computer, she'd never jailbroken.
    Download tiny umbrella and uncheck 'set cydia hosts on exit'

    or go to /private/etc and edit the hosts file. Either add a # before the apple IP/address or edit it out. should work then.
