Windows 7 machines will not update

I have a Windows SBS 2011 x64 server that is apparently not allowing any Windows 7 pcs update. The units were previously giving errors stating that updates were managed by the server, and could not be updated manually. Automatic updates are not working either. I had gone ahead, and went into the Group Policy Manager on the server, and found that the windows 7 machines  were not added to the Update Services Client Computers Policy. After I added the units, they are still not updating automatically, but you are able to get updates from the update website. Each time the unit fails to run Windows update it gets either error code 80072efd or 8024800a. Whenever any of these units are taken out of the environment, they will update without issue. Please help!
