A lot of variables can be happening here.
First of all, let's create a test account and see what happens there when trying to connect to do software updates from there.
OS X Mountain Lion: Create a new user account

Thanks for your help ! I have to pick up the Macbook at my friend's place to try that.

I have now created a new user account, but the problem persists. "Connection to the App Store impossible. An internet connection is required." Question now : how can I delete that account? Is it required to set a general password for that? Thanks!

I am stuck with the iTunes account as well. I entered all detail, an iTunes gift card code, but then a message comes back : Unknown error -1202, try again later. I am about to play frisbee with that new powerbook. I wouldn't believe it, but I start to think that many are right when they say that Apple's greed is killing what once was the Macintosh...

Ok, after quitting and launching iTunes again, the process went through and the account was activated... pfff.
Nevertheless, App Store still has a problem and cannot connect to the internet.

Does App Store require that the localisation service be activated to connect?

Slow down brown cow. I only have very little time every day to troubleshoot here
A couple of your next posts has now given us some more clues, so now it is time to change your DNS:
Network Preferences --> Advanced --> DNS --> DNS Servers
Add these two entries:
Remove everything else. Leave Domains as is.
Reboot if this fails.

How now brown cow ? ... Well, the new DNS work, but App Store still sees the Mac unconnected. I have deactivated the firewall with no result.
Localization must be on, or doesn't matter ?
Thanks so far for your tips and patience !

Ok, next task:

Hum. Link seems broken or server unavailable.

Looks like the server is gone now. No worries:
- Delete the files /var/db/crls/crlcache.db and /var/db/crls/ocspcache.db. These can be found using Finder’s Go >; Go To Folder menu (Cmd + Shift + G). This resets the cache of accepted certificates in the system. It doesn’t remove them, it just forces the system to rebuild the caches upon restart.
- Open Keychain Access (/Applications/Utilities/Keychain Access). Select Certificates in the Category picker on the left side. In the search bar, type in the word Class. Look through that list, and find any certificates that have a blue + symbol over their icon. These are the ones you need to modify.
- Select one that has a blue +, and hit Command + I. Click the disclosure triangle beside the “Trust” list to show the list of permissions. Now, what we need to do is to set this certificate to use the system defaults. However, for some reason, when you select it, it doesn’t save. So what you need to do is this. Under “Trust”, where it says “Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)”, change the dropdown menu to say “No Value Specified”. Then, close the window. It will ask for your administrator permissions. Then, open the info pane for that certificate again. Under “Trust” again, now set the dropdown that says “When using this certificate:” to say “Use System Defaults”. You can then close out of the info pane, and enter your password again. Do this for any of the certificates that have a blue + on their icon. There should only be one or two at most.
- Restart your system.
