Automatic update acutally says that it installs it over and over again, and then it appears again as a 1.9mb download:

But it is also listed in the update history as successfully installed.
I tried the manual download and get this error message:
An internal error occurred while installing the service pack.
Error code 0x800F0900. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkId=101139
The link provides several resolutions which have not worked. I am about to do them all again in order in case I missed something.
thanks for your help.
