You're going to have to explain more clearly than that. What updates are you asking about? Do you have SP3 installed? If not, that's the 1st thing you should do.

Maybe your Wups2.dll file is outdated or corrupted. Try this Microsoft Fix It Tool and see if it helps:

You cannot install updates from Windows Update, Microsoft Update, or by using Automatic Update after a repair install of Windows XP or after you install Windows XP SP3 immediately after a clean install of Windows XP SP2
