Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
This error is due to a problem where the connection to the server has timed out. This may be due to a problem with the Network server itself or congestion traffic on your ISP.
You should be aware that there is a known problem with overloaded servers on the PSN since 11/11/09 which is effecting the majority of users at present and Sony is presently working on a fix. I would suggest that you try the update again at a later time when these issues may have resolved.
According to Sony this is because of "Database and Server Overloads" due to the number of Big Games and updates being released at the moment and is not Profile specific
If the problem persists you need to check your connection settings are correctly set up.
