I found a solution these keys are causing my problem and I fix it by changing the below keys to "0" after that I was able to install SP2 and updates successfully.

I have also removed the keys from other machines and it seems fix the problem as well.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\UpdateExeVolatile]
"Flags"=dword:00000003

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\UpdateExeVolatile_01C60B4A7471BAAB]
"Flags"=dword:00000002
