Error when VirtualBox checks for Updates => Fixed in SVN

Description

I have been having this problem since I updated from 4.3.8 to 4.3.10 and 4.3.12. When VirtualBox checks for updates, I get this error: The network operation failed with the following error: Unknown reason. I am a computer tech and have done firewall troubleshooting both in Windows Firewall and on the Router. That's not the issue. I even redownloaded/installed 4.3.8 back onto my system and have the same problem. I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed on this laptop (HP Pavilion g7-1139WM Notebook PC) and Windows XP Professional installed on the other laptop (Dell Latitude D600). I couldn't find a VBox.log only the VBoxSRV.log and the selectorwindow.log because I formatted this laptop and haven't installed or ran any guest OS's yet. It's not an urgent thing to fix. I just thought I would let you know as I can still manually check for updates through the browser on your website, but it is nice when the software automatically tells me when there is a new version. I really love the work that you guys put into VirtualBox. I LOVE this software and use it every day especially for games that won't install on a 64-bit system. Keep up the good work.

Looks like it's back again in Virtualbox 5.0.0 r101573... I'm experiencing the same problems as mentioned and this is on a MacBook Pro Retina 15" Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.4 Host.

Windows 10 Home 64-bit. VBox 5.0.1r102010. Same problem.

Network Operations Manager

Checking for a new VirtualBox version...

The network operation failed with the following error: Unknown reason.

Have tried disabling Windows Firewall and Windows Defender. Same result with Standard User logon. However, with an Administrators Group logon, problems does not occur, even with Firewall and Defender enabled.
