Did you try to google the error message in its entirety? That will usually bring up a fix... Also, sometimes you can just download the update you need instead of going through windows update. Try download.com, or even the microsoft site, they might have it.

http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/winxpsp2-security.html

Can't guarantee it's not malware, but the file name and size match up :shrug:

They only had a network installer for xp sp2 on the microsoft site....
