May need to be a little more descriptive with what you've done to advertise your updates, where it does work, where it doesn't, same site or different, protected boundaries, etc.

I have three sites, only two of which would require this service pack.  The SP is going out to one and not the other.  I suspect the SCCM sever in the location that is not working is the problem but have not been able to find the issue for far.  If anyone has some troubleshooting suggestions that would be great.

Packages Are Not Replicated to a Branch Distribution Point After an Extended Wait
Occasionally, when provisioning a branch distribution point, packages might not be replicated properly even after waiting for an extended period of time. A typical symptom of this can be the branch distribution point continuing to remain in "downloading" status for an extended period of time. This can occur because the job thread has failed before the main process thread, causing a known issue between the content transfer manager and the branch distribution point agent. Solution
Retry the branch distribution point by refreshing (updating) the package. This should solve the issue.
I also rebooted the server and things seem to be fine now.
