Getting error message when running Security Patch Sync package

I'm getting the following error when running the Security Patch Sync package: "The program for advertisement CR120244 failed (Security Patch Sync)." The failure description was "Sync tool failed to download: http://download.microsoft.com/download/0/d/b/0db2e5d7-0ba9-4856-b51f-db7c0b838c68/MSSecure_1033.CAB -- Error code: 193. Possible cause: The program generated an install status Management Information Format (MIF) file with a status value of Failed. Solution: For more information about the failure, refer to the documentation for the program you are distributing."

What is the problem and what is the solution?

Make sure that you can download the .cab file manually using the link provided in the error message. If you cannot download it manually, you will want to verify that you have proper access through the network to download it. You may need to update the .cab file manually.
