    Hi Hur,
    I was getting this exact same problem as well on my fresh install of vista
    ultimate. I believe this error indicates a "file hash mismatch". What that
    basically translates to is a corrupted file. Most likely your computer
    crashed or locked up while downloading or installing updates like mine did.

    What you will need to do to fix this is get the updater to redownload the
    files for your failed updates. To accomplish this requires some slightly
    complicated steps:

    1) Go to your "Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" folder. You should see
    a bunch of folders with random looking names

    2) Look in each of these folders until you find one that has a .cab file
    with a name that contains the update number that failed (i.e.
    Windows6.0-KB929427-x86-EXPRESS.cab or something similar). If you can't find
    the cab file there should be some other file in the folder that indicates its
    number.

    3) Backup then delete the entire folder (the one with the random looking
    name) that contains that cab file

    4) Repeat for each of the updates that are failing for you

    5) You might have to reboot at this point but I didn't have to

    6) Either wait for the updater to notify you or manually check for updates

    7) The updates should be available for download again

    8) Let the updater download and apply the previously failed updates and it
    should work this time

    If this is too complicated, the other thing you can try is backing up and
    deleting the entire contents of the "Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download"
    folder. I did not try this though so I don't know if that is advisable.

    Hope this helps you out :)
