I am experiencing the same error. Fix is upgrading Windows Update Agent on PCs to latest version 7.4.7600.226.

I think error is related to latest wsusscn2.cab file and PC with older Windows Update Version are not being able to parse successfully. I have several PCs with the latest verison that are scanning successfully

Link below has information on Updating WU Agent

Since your computer is having an issue to find and install the operating system updates, then you can try to use the Windows Update Troubleshooter to solve the problem, download it from here - http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9830262. This troubleshooter ensures that your pc is connected to the internet and verifies whether the network adapter and Windows Update services are running properly or not.
