Hello,

I have a SharePoint 2013 Server 15.0.4569, the March 2014 SP1.  I am applying the September 2014 CU KB2883087, but the install package says:  The installation package has failed.

Where do I find a log file that tells me what happen and why the CU is failing?

Thanks

Please install KB 2883068 which is Sept 2014 CU for SP 2013 Server. You are trying to install Foundation CU which is likely to fail.
In future, You can view sharepoint logs in C:\program files\common files\Microsoft shared\web server extensions\15\logs. Installation logs resides on %temp% location.
