WSUS update from 3.0 SP1 to 3.0SP2 fails

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hi Experts,

Seem to be going around in circles attempting to update WSUS to 3.0SP2 but receive the following message -  
"Windows Server Update Services could not be upgraded. A database backup was created at G:\WSUS\{D013EBD7-0B73-41D1-86DF-9453D6B9C958}. For more information, see the Setup log "C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\1\WSUSSetup.log".

Also having troubles deciphering the logs so I have attached them hoping this might shed some light for the experienced WSUSers... thanks in advance.
