Several months ago I approved 'Service pack 3 for XP' for install via my WSUS server (win2003) after many synchronisations there is now a message next to the update "there is a newer version of this update available" but there is still only one SP3 listed, and this is now NOT approved for install. what's going on?

I am looking at ALL updates in my view.

There probably was a revision update, you can right click on it and select revision history. The latest revision is 111

There is indeed a newer revision, but this is not listed as 'Install'. My options have the "auto approve new revisions of updates" and "auto decline when new updates cause them to expire" ticked so why is this happening?
shall i manually approve revision 111 and delince the old revision? I have run cleanup and both are still listed.
 
Thanks

That wont make all my machines (400 of them) with version 103 reinstall version 111? It's obviously a huge update.
