Backup Exec 11 - Update SERVICE PACK 5 failed to install

A customer's Backup Exec is unable to update. When we log in to Backup Exec we see the following:

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What is the source of the patch? Is it a downloaded file, CD, network share, etc? I have seen problems depending on the source.
