Server you're trying to update is switched off? ie is SQL Server service running? If not, then that causes the error.

When it is my production Server, how could it be switched off? However the service does gets stopped; after the update failure which the I have to turn it on again manually.

A lot of the Google searches for this error talk about clusters - is your scenario on a cluster?
