Exchange 2007 sp2 Rollup 5 error

I  am working on a  server that is running Windows 2003 R2 SP2 and Exchange 2007 SP2.  I am preparing to migrate the exchange to new hardware and exchange 2013, and need to update the existing Exchange 2007 SP2 in order to do this.  When attempting to install Rollup5, the installation says stopping services, then rolling back and ends prematurely, and creates an event log as per below.  I have attached the verbose log.  The same error occurs using microsoft update, and manually installing.  I have re-registered msiexec, as well as reinstalled it.

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      MsiInstaller

Minimum coexistence requirements for Exchange 2013 is Exchange 2007 SP3 with UR10.


However, UR10 is no longer supported. But UR20 and 21 are.

Ditch SP2 UR5 to install SP3 and UR21. URs are cumulative so you only need to install the most recent one.
