System Update fails to download updates

On a T520 with Windows 7, System Update 5 finds one critical update.  When told to continue, it finishes with the message that the package did not download.  This has happened repeatedly over two days.  I have looked at reports of similar problems but did not see anything that helped.  The update is Intel Management Engine Firmware 7.1.  Suggestions?

I had a similar problem on a T430s. System Update couldn't install this particular update. I was finally able to install the update by downloading it from Lenovo's Support site, then manually installing it.

Thanks, but I really don't want to have to make time for this.  How critical is this update anyway?

It's a security update:

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
