I've got a couple of Windows 2000 servers (SP4) that cannot upgrade using Automatic Updates. Everything seems to be working normally up to the point where the downloaded updates are installed. Automatic Updates reports that "Updates were unable to be succesfully installed". Below is the tail end of the update log showing the point of failure...

I have found that the failed updates can be installed manually without a problem.
