SCCM SCUP publishing error - can't download some updates -UPDATED with screenshots

Published some critical updates from SCUP.
SCCM synchronized the updates but I can't download them.
Looking in the update properties in SCCM, the content locationBad Location   points to a folder that doesn't exist Folder Doesn't Exist in SCCM WSUS-CONTENT. - explains why I can't download.
I just did a SCUP publish with another new update and the proper folder was createdNew SCUP Publish Creates correct folder.. - and I could download.
If I try to republish the first updates from SCUP, it says the the updates were already published and I can't re-publish them. Can't re-publish update from SCUP
1. What would have caused this?
2. Can I delete the updates in SCCM and re-publish them from SCUP. -Could I delete the folders in WSUSContent?
3. How do I re-publish them with the correct folder and name?

..or if I'm asking the wrong questions - how do I get these updates to publish, sync, and download properly

If I couldn't publish now, I'd think there was something wrong with my setup.  It only affected the 4 critical driver updates that I need to push asap.

These are kind of critical, so I don't want to experiment by deleting folders willy-nilly.

Thanks for the help.  

This ended up with needing support from Microsoft.  There were multiple issues as a result of the latest SCCM upgrade. They had 2 engineers who worked over a period of 2 weeks!
