If that's  still in issue,

it might be access-right issue, someone change it, if so it is hard to fix it besides
try by error. There is a few report found about this issue in google.

Anway, take a look at this during waiting

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/6f4c313c-3f8a-43a2-a641-97fe654b2319/wsus-sp2-unable-to-download-updates-for-windows-2008-r2

Try to save the update to new  different destination folder from the default C: \ WSUS \ WSUSContent for testing purpose only

the article tells where is  content directory about that

Be reminded change it back if not working

i also get the solution http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc708426(v=ws.10).aspx , as me to To

1.Type: net stop WSUSService, and then press ENTER.

2.Type: "%programfiles%\Update Services\tools\osql\osql.exe"  -S SQL_InstanceName -E -b -n –Q "USE SUSDB update tbConfigurationC set BitsDownloadPriorityForeground=1" and then press ENTER.

3.Type: net start WSUSService.

4.Close the command prompt window and retry synchronization: in the WSUS console, click Options, click Synchronization Options, and then under Tasks, click Synchronize now.

but i did not find  "%programfiles%\Update Services\tools\osql\osql.exe", there is no osql folder under the tools, any advice?

do you have sqlcmd , try it  and read followings, osql may be removed in latest sql server

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms162806.aspx

use sqlcmd instead
===============
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms162773.aspx


you might need to install sql server if no sqlcmd and no MS sql server
so you might download update something relate to sql so that
you has such issue
