Can anyone help me in figuring out why this server has failed repeatedly to install these updates?

Thank You!

You're installing them through windows update?  Try downloading the service packs as standalone files and see if they will install that way

Unfortunately not solved ... I have enough disk space, it seems that the installation for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 fails on the "Client Components".
