When you try to run the rollup, you may see the warning about certificate revocation list,this is because Exchange tries to connect to the certificate revocation list (CRL) that has been issued by the publisher of the update rollup package or of the service pack. please adjust the IE settings to workaround the warning shown before you proceed with the roll up installation.
