I had now many service packs that fail last minute when "Ran as administrator" was used, but worked fine when the command line was opened as administrator then the SP called from within the command line.

in your case,
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2872882

seems more relavant.

Try to run the update from the command prompt (Run it as administrator)

that kb article references LDAP errors on a domain controller which has nothing to do with this; the error above (and screenshot) clearly references a certificate issue

if the default self-signed certificate was deleted previously, then the registry might still have a reference to it

go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/SmallBusinesServer/Networking/LeafCertThumbprint and clear the value (not the key itself)

try the service pack installation again

In SBS Console run the "set your internet address" wiizard again. It will also reset your certificates.
Run SP3 as admin after that .
Hope that helps,
Olaf

The problem got compounded by other people - someone shutdown the server in the middle of some important operation. Microsoft helped resolve the issue in 2 or so days. Thanks for your comments.
