Update AcrobatReader 11.0.06 by SCCM 2012

I try to update AcrobatReader using SCCm 2012.
My base image has AdobeReader 11.0.00, I want to update to version 11.0.06.
When I sent the package to a test computer without AcrobatReader, it is installed without problem.  But when I sent to  PCs with AdobeReader 11.0.00 installed, I got a error 0x87D00324 (-2016410844) for some computers and others stay "in progress" content Downloaded.

For detection rule, I use the default MSI Product Code and MSI Property Version Equals 11.0.06

It sounds like the file you're using is the full install rather than an update package. If you run the full install to install acrobat reader you would need to first uninstall the earlier version from the machines that have it, so create a check that will look for AcrobatReader 11.0.0 and uninstall it.

How can I apply only the AcrobatReader update?

You should be able to download a package that contains only the update from Adobe if they make it available. If there is no update package for it, you could potentially create an Update MSI by snapshotting a system before and after the update and packaging the changes in an MSI, then setting up a package that pushes that out. Not sure how well that would go, though. I'm not 100% sure about this, but I think Adobe's updater actually uninstalls the old version and installs the new version when it does its work. I haven't dug that deep into it.

When I did the transforms, I check the option for uninstall the previous version.  I need to test if this is working.

Yes, the application don't uninstall the previous version, but if you go to Programs and features you can see the Adobe Reader XI(11.0.06), but the actual software is in 11.0.0.
When I try to run the command manually I got a error that needs to close Adobe Reader, but nothing is running.  I add a file with the error

You are right, the solution is uninstall the previous version. How can I do a check that will look for Acrobat Reader 11.0.0 and uninstall it?

We need to uninstall the previous version, to install a new updated full version.
To avoid it I create a package in SCCM with the update only.
the command line you will be  msiexec.exe /p patchname.msp /qn
