Installing SP1 Fails.

Server has two instances. Default instance of SQL Server 2008 and named instance of SQL Server 2005 SP1.  Installation is failing with error on "SQL_Replication_core_inst".

Below are some of the things i did but the error was still there.
Disabled Publisher/Distributor on default instance
Disabled Publisher/Distributor on Named instance.
Disabled CDC on default instance.
Stopped SQL Services on default instance

I had to uninstall "SQL Server 2008 R2 Books Online" and then the upgrade worked.

The workaround posted by Trevor Seward sorted my system the registry keys I set to 1 were in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSAS10_50.MSSQLSERVER\ConfigurationState and this solved the "SQL 2008 SP1 Fails with error code 0x84B20001" windows update error that had been bugging me for months!

i have the problem, to but the workaround dont work. I got the messege that the integration services runs with a wrong User/Password. Is there any way update to sp1 without deinstallation/repairing the integration services? please help!

See my workaround on the workarounds page. Make sure that you do "<<Repair shared components only>>", not a particular instance, when doing the Repair wizard.

Same deal here, edition upgrade from Ent Eval. No fix? Closed (By Design)?

Got same problem with single instance of SQL Server. Was upgrade edition from Ent Eval to Workgroup.
Repair does not help.

I am having the same issue. Per instruction to repair instance - can you be more specific? Does this mean run setu0p0 from the original dvd and choose a repair option? (Note: My installation was developer edition. No evaluation edition ever installed on this machine.)

Your logs indicate that your existing install needs to be Repair. Please Repair your instance and try applying SP1 again.

I too am having the same issue. Was the instance originally an evaluation version which you had to upgrade?

Attached are log files from two different runs of the installation which both failed.
