I had a similar problem had to re-install (remove-install) while keeping the data base. Everything is ok now.

On the previous install, was the WSUS DB left in a default location? Was anything that you know of customised is any way?

Just wondering if the install of SP2 has somehow reverted to default settings when you've got things in different places etc...

I don't have a W2k8 box to play about with it on though I'm afraid, so it's just guess work!
