Update error. Cannot check for updates. EventID 1001

Update error. Cannot check for updates. I have restarted PC and the Windows Update service (it is enabled and automatic on restart).  There is an event ID 1001 in the event log that is showing when I try to run WinUpdate.

Can anyone help troubleshoot this?

Thanks.
