Trying to set up brand new iPod shuffle (4th gen) in iTunes, but it says "The iPod software update server could not be contacted."

I just bought a 4th generation iPod shuffle from the store.  At the end of the iPod set-up in iTunes, whenever I click "done" a message pops up that says, "The iPod software update server could not be contacted."
