after the sharepoint update I ran spconfig command and it fails on one of the steps.  Now in event viewer there are errors from sharepoint comming up.

one of the errors are event id 3760:::::SQL Database 'WSS_Search_SBS2011' on SQL Server instance 'SBS2011\SHAREPOINT' not found. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below.

Cannot open database "WSS_Search_SBS2011" requested by the login. The login failed.
Login failed for user 'SAMS\spfarm'.


and the other error is event id 6398:::::The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.SharePoint.Search.Administration.SPSearchJobDefinition (ID d4f93fc8-3847-4237-90a0-1d5b6397fa4a) threw an exception. More information is included below.

Cannot open database "WSS_Search_SBS2011" requested by the login. The login failed.
Login failed for user 'SAMS\spfarm'.



whenever i tun the backup it fails when it is trying to run the VSS before it backs up the data.

Im pretty sure the server is not backing up because sharepoint will not update.  Any Ideas

Give this a shot...
Open the SharePoint management shell..Start, all programs, Microsoft SharePoint 2010 products, mgmnt shell
run the command
(get-spserver $env:servername).NeedsUpgrade  where server name is the name of your machine
If the Value comes back as True, try running the psconfig command.  Follow the details in this article:

I would run the PSconfig anyway just to force any updates.  The site will go down for a few minutes while it runs

If I don't put in the computer name and leave the line as default it tells me false.

If I stop the sharepoint server service and the sharepoint timer server the server does backup. It backed up yesterday then I turned the services back on and the scheduled backup failed last night.

Ok, well I'm hoping your database is still there.  Take a look at this article, skip over the restore part and start from reconnect to central admin

If the DB is not there, you may need to restore from a backup

This may help you as well:
