This means he was not able to download a work unit. This can either be  
a network problem, or that the pool of WUs is depleted. At the WE when  
I tried to get this working even my Windows Laptop didn't receive WUs.  
Yesterday to today I got WUs non-stop (but it takes some hours to  
process a WU... my dual-socket Xeon system processes a WU since  
yesterday 11pm and is currently at 50% of the WU).

Be patient, they are adding WUs as fast as they can.

You can check in the forum for more info about this:
