Tim, first check that you do not have a Server Profile set-up. To do this, rather than choose "Check for updates", choose "Server profiles" - if you have any server profiles there and you don't have any use for them (they're not required as default) then delete it. Once deleted, try and search for updates again - you should find this fixes the issue.

If this doesn't solve your issue, you may want to try a hard reset (you won't lose any data), which is explained in our article which can be found here. If this does NOT solve your issue, reply to the e-mail that is coupled with this answer and we will ensure you fix this issue.
