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

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
