Windows Update “Managed by your system administrator” nightmare

Today I encountered a bizarre issue when performing a routine setup on a refurbished (read: practically brand new) Dell Studio laptop. The problem manifested itself when Windows Update was run; rather than successfully connect to the Windows Update server and download updates information, the client would return an error:
