People, use common sense as with every update if you need an unlock (even if you're on 4.1) do NOT update. Just have a little patience.

i had the same problem and my problem was sorted by deleting tiny umbrella app and reinstalling itunes i think tiny umbrella is interfering the update server connection in some way

Look in your hosts file. You probably have it edited for SHSH restore. That's the issue. Remember NOT to update if you want to keep jailbreak or have a chance at unlock. (jailbreak should be updated soon enough) I think there is a tethered jailbreak redsn0w out if one really can't wait.
