We're trying to get away from accepting log files as an attachment, just not safe anymore - I hope you understand. If you could put the log file (unedited) and only the release you're having trouble with in Spoiler it would be much easier (and safer) to read.
If you're unsure how to do this read Log File Reference & Log File How-To.

It's better than trusting a zip file but Spoiler is the easiest - no links to follow, click Show and walla
OK, I downloaded from all 3 links and they work, the files checked. I'm guessing you have an issue at your end. You can try manually downloading the files and drop them in the appropriate folders. There's a caveat though, you'll need to rename 2 of the files. Btw, always run APUP again when done to confirm your work.
Let's start with the easiest. rootsupd.exe
... If you can download manually, delete the partial file if one exists and drop the complete file in \modules\Critical\RootCert_files
These 2 are really easy, just get the names correct and drop them in the appropriate folders - look at your log file Like I said, the names are kinda long, your log has the correct names - copy and paste - use the kbxxxxxx and rename the correct files.
... windowsxp-kb892130-enu-x86_72e487d115be77f49f64053893a23ecb58bc59cb.exe - rename to WindowsXP-KB892130-ENU-x86.exe, drop in \modules\wga\wga_files
... windowsxp-kb898461-x86-enu_e8e139341e1a6c535ddf2db57052c71d19fc7249.exe - rename to WindowsXP-KB898461-x86-ENU.exe, drop in \modules\NonCritical\KB898461_xp_x86_enu.apm_files
Use your log file for exact names, locations, and md5sums, don't forget to run APUP again, you want the files to pass. Post back if you get stuck.

Have mercy, it might have helped knowing this up front Try using the proxy settings in APUP 'Options'. If it works please let us know.
If you try updating a system within a network using AutoPatcher (not APUP) - good luck, AutoPatcher hasn't been very cooperative. If you find a way please post the details.

In response to the corporate proxy not being mentioned, I hadn't assumed it was the problem simply because 99% of the downloads finished through that exact same proxy without a single problem. Only two individual files failed to download; I have no idea why. Such is life.
Also, I have had very good luck updating a few of our systems with the autopatcher system, including Windows and Office updates and Adobe Reader. I have enough privileges to install and remove most software while the PC is on the domain, though. If I encounter further problems (and overcome them), I'll come back to share my experiences.
