Earlier today, after the release of iOS 7, numerous users are complaining on receiving series of issues. And it seems that the reason behind it is because of too much server load on Apple's CDN. With the error you got, there is nothing much you can do unless you wait to lessen the server load. Alternatively, you can try to do a manual reset. Press the Home button and the lock button for at least 10 seconds. And just after the restart, try updating your iOS device again.

This is just for now. Let us know if you have resolve this issue with the fix above so we can also help other iOS users.

This error is very similar to receiving the error “NSURLErrorDomain error -1102.)(102)” in iTunes that also prevents the whole process. I think the main cause of the problem is because of iTunes. Since majority of the process when updating the iPhone’s operating system is the need to connect the handset to the computer and then running iTunes, it is iTunes that is responsible for the whole task.

Majority of the problems that are related to this are using iTunes 11.1.0 and they are using the built-in updater to update their handset. The normal procedure when updating iPhone is to update iTunes first using its built-in updater and then update the phone after that. And the problem usually happens during the updating process of iTunes.

So to avoid this, open your web browser and then download the latest version from Download iTunes 11.1. Save the file in a folder. After that, since iTunes is still installed, uninstall iTunes from your computer. Next, go to the folder where you save the newly downloaded file. Double-click it to start installing iTunes.

After installing, connect your iPhone to the computer and then open iTunes. Check for any new updates and then begin updating your phone.

This type of error is quite common with apple new releases or any of the large volume releases. What you just need to do is to attempt using the manual reset by pressing Home button and lock button for a short while. Then update after you have restarted and it will surly work.
