I did a search on and found some references to virus problems or 3rd party application issues, although not matching your exact error message. Check for viruses and compare installed programs w/ the successful upgrades.

Hope this helps,

Try reading Microsoft's Article Q252725. It has a reference that is real close to the problem you have listed.
