I bet if you 

  echo $insertquery

right here, you won't see what you were expecting to.  (Hint: $password
and $DUNSNumber aren't set when you give $insertquery its value; neither
is the string updated for each iteration of this loop.)

Perhaps that's not the entire problem, but it can't be helping...if
nothing else, once that's corrected maybe you can start looking at doing
those updates in smaller batches.  20 minutes does seem a bit extreme,
but then it's hard to make much of a judgment on that without knowing
more about the machine in question, what else it's being used for
besides sql services, how heavily it's being utilized, etc.
