    That error sometimes means that the server is actually down, but most often it is caused either by your antivirus or firewall blocking access to gs.apple.com, or you have used your computer at some time in the past to hack or jailbreak some device running iOS (not necessarily the phone with the problem) and your hosts database on your computer is corrupted.
