WSUS attempts to write to incorrect path

I have an issue with only some updates trying to download to E:\WSUS\WsusContent\WsusContent. The SoftwareDistribution.log says that there is an error creating sub-directories in this path.

The actual path to the content directory is E:\WSUS\WsusContent   *NOT*  E:\WSUS\WsusContent\WsusContent.  All other updates are writing to the correct path.

It's not clear to me where I can "tell" WSUS that it needs to write the updates in question to the correct path or why it's even doing this in the first place.

For grins, I thought I'd run wsusutil.exe and point to E:\WSUS\WsusContent, however, the log file generated indicates that "The new content file location is the same as the old location: E:\WSUS\WsusContent.

Any suggestions?
