I am having this same problem.  I have taken all troubleshooting actions from Windows and Brother, including the link provided above.  I have a Brother HL-3070CW (I believe the 2011 update.)  In Windows Update, I receive the error "Code 80070704 Windows Update encountered an unknown error."  I "Try Again" to no avail.  

Please advise.
