I just downloaded windows 8 and I found an update.  I tried to install it. It said "Update Failed" and had an the following error code: "80073712"  If anyone can help I would really appreciate it!  I really need help and these forums is all I can think of.  Thank you.

Wow can't believe the timezone is now important for Windows Update! It is important in a domain network though.

Correct timezone is not a requirement for Windows Update. It's a requirement for SSL connections though.
