WSUS error 0x8024002D

We have WSUS for updating our desktops (WinXP, Office2003). It works fine with Win updates, but with Office 2003 SP2 update, we get error 0x8024002D on some of them. On all our desktops is the same image, built with SYSPREP. Office is installed from network, administrative installation, and all source files are there.
I don't understand, why on some desktops upgrade complete without errors?

I checked the installation path in registry. All desktops have right path.
I tried to restart server, services on desktops, ... without success.

Any idea how to solve this problem?
Thanks

The first Link you have the following solution indicating that the problem could be with windows Installer...

Method 1: View your installation history on the Windows Update Web site or on the Microsoft Update Web site
Locate the installation error
1. Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update or Microsoft Update.
2. On the Windows Update Web site or on the Microsoft Update Web site, click Review your update history.
3. In the status column for the unsuccessful update, click the red X.

A new window opens that displays the installation error.

Search for the installation error in the Windows Update Troubleshooter
1. Click Find Solutions.
2. Type the error message that appears in the window that opened in step 3 of "Locate the installation error."
3. Click Search.

Search for the installation error in the Microsoft Knowledge Base
1. Click Go to Knowledge Base Articles.
2. Search for the error message you received.
Note All errors in the installation history are displayed by using hexadecimal notation. Microsoft Windows Installer errors are generally referenced by using decimal notation in online documentation. Therefore, error 0x52f is Windows Installer error 1327.

This one too,
Office 2003 updates from Windows Update, from Microsoft Update, or from WSUS
By default, Office 2003 updates are offered to a client as binary-delta updates. To reduce the size of the download, these updates only contain the actual files that change. These updates require access to the local installation source (LIS) or to the original installation media. If the update cannot be installed, the client requests the full update the next time that it connects to the Windows Update Web site or to the Microsoft Update Web site. The following sections describe the specific scenarios.
Installing updates with Automatic Updates by using Microsoft Update or WSUS
• Automatic updates and scheduled installation scenario 1. The binary delta update is offered first.
2. If the binary delta update fails with error 0x8024002c, the full update is offered during the next detection attempt.
3. If the full update fails with error 0x8024002d, the update installs in interactive mode. Windows Installer prompts for installation media if it is required.
