I found the log file for the first couple of errors and it seems that
the common issue is around not finding some of the drivers (probably
coz I don;t have later versions of sp). Can someone please help?

Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update,
from Microsoft Update, or by using Automatic Updates after
you repair a Windows XP installation
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

(Try it even if you did a clean, not repair, installation.)
(Try it even if you performed some sort of restore - not repair install.)
(Try it even if you did an upgrade installation.)
(Try it no matter what - it is *not* harmful and may fix your issue.)

Do all suggested methods.

HELP! ***Updates could not be installed***
Have just this morning solved this problem on my PC, after weeks of searching. The tip came from a technician where I bought my PC (in Germany) and a search of the of this file with Google found it only, it would seem, on German websites, this should not present too much of a problem though :

winupdrestore!v23.exe

I hope it helps you too, after all my desperate searching felt a need to share the information.
