This was not a problem for me on 10.0. I can no longer update my podcasts because I get this error message

"There was a problem downloading (podcast name) the network connection could not be made"

so first I ran diagnostics for the network connection and it said that it could not make a secure connection to the itunes store. I clicked help and it said to add a rule to the windows firewall (even though one already existed), I did that and now its green but I still get the same error message. Here is the information from the diagnostics.
