Code 80070490 Windows Update encountered an unknown error.

Yesterday I was prompted to install a Windows Update KB967723 and proceeded to run/install the update. During the installation process, I get the following message, “Code 80070490 Windows Update encountered an unknown error.”

After hours of search I determined that Windows Update attempted to install a 64 bit version of KB967723 instead of 32 bit. According to Microsoft the KB967723 update fixes a security issue “that could allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to compromise your system and gain control over it.” The following link is the 32 bit version of KB967723 (Windows Server 2008).
