Default Windows Update unable to complete - Vista 64

So, I went to check for updates today and got a message that a new version of Windows Update was needed to do so. So I hit okay and went on my way. It SEEMED to complete without issue and restarted Windows Update. I hit "Check for Updates" and now after a prolonged wait and apparent searching I get:

Windows could not search for new updates.

Error Found

Code 80072EE2

Windows Update encountered an unknown error.

Help window doesnt offer much. Everything else seems to work fine. Sooo ... ????

Install the latest Windows Update Agent 3.0 x64

Install through command prompt with /wuforce switch.
so it will be like this windowsupdateagent30-x64.exe /wuforce
