Well, I guess you have two choices then. Either try to diagnose why
you are being offered that update (E.g. activate verbose logging for
AU/MU (ref. KB902093). Doing that might show that you did have
something wrong which could be fixed to avoid the offering.)
or suppress it and hope that: A) the error is on the server side
and B) that it eventually stops being offered.
In fact, I just thought of another thing you could look at fairly easily.
Are those SQL updates MSI based? See what the Windows Installer
Cleanup Utility tells you about SQL Express 2005...

msi cleanup SQL 2005
