I keep getting the error "Error retrieving update information" when I check for updates.
I am behind a proxy, but web access works fine on all browsers. I don't know that the problem is the proxy, but what could the cause be? I fails immediately and gives no other indication of error.
Found an error in the Message Log:
Thinking you need proxy support...
