User(s) can reproduce this bug
Running "Security Update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (KB948109)" always fails. Automatic updates continues to offer this update.
All SQL-related services are set to Manual or Automatic startup.
I have tried downloading KB948109 and running it manually. It aborts abruptly partway through, with no error message shown.
I have attached verbose logs.
As suggested at http://thisoldcode.net/PermaLink,guid,f7c3a9c4-041b-4cae-8dc6-67a872757ed2.aspx, I have uninstalled sqlwriter, deleted the SID values from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\Setup, re-installed sqlwriter, and brought sqlwriter up to SP2. However, the KB948109 update still fails.
SQL Server 2005 SP2 - Developer Edition
Win2003 Standard Server (SP2)
Operating System Language
Steps to Reproduce
When Automatic Updates offers to install "Security Update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (KB948109)", choose Install.
Update fails, showing a dialog window:
Some udpates could not be installed
The following updates were not installed:
Security Update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (KB948109)
In a few minutes, automatic updates will again offer to install the same update.
Update should succeed.
Automatic Updates should be satisfied that the update is no longer needed.

Thanks for contacting us. This problem usually happens when the SQLSupport files are corrupt. Please follow these instructions to uninstall and install:
Click on the Start menu, choose Run and type regedit
1. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Bootstrap\MSIRefCount
2. Rename the Uninstall value to Uninstall2
3. Click on the Start menu, choose Run and type appwiz.cpl
4. Uninstall the product named Microsoft SQL Server Setup Support Files
5. Locate and install the MSI named SqlSupport.msi from the original installation media for SQL Server 2005
6. Click on the Start menu, choose Run and type regedit
7. Remove the Uninstall and Rename the Uninstall2 value back to Uninstall
8, Install SP2 to patch SQLSupport
9, Rerun the patch

This has occurred several times now, first as part of a batch of updates, and then on two subsequent attempts to install the update by itself. Always through Automatic Updates, after I review and approve.
