Mac Trivia: Zero Byte resource error

You can probably skip this post. I wanted to blog it to help people with this problem solve it faster. It involves the Mac System update tool throwing up a dialog that says:

A networking error has occurred: zero byte resource (-1014). Make sure you can connect to the Internet, then try again.
