Reference: Pinal Dave (https://blog.sqlauthority.com)Hi Pinal, I had a similar issue in my recent upgrade and corrected the path for the default data and the upgrade went fine but then I had another different issue which I thought would run through you to see if you had come across this anytime.
Have you encountered such errors and were able to look at the logs?
Does going to "Ready to update" add value to the validation?
is to handle scenario where end user does not want to restart after applying service pack in that case you need to make sure all such processes are stopped, but in any case I strongly recommend to start windows machine/node on which you are applying service pack.

Pinal Dave is a SQL Server Performance Tuning Expert and an independent consultant.I'm trying to upgrade SQL Server 2000 to SP4, so I can upgrade it to 2008 later, but I'm getting this error. You may want to try this: You may receive the "Setup was unable to validate the logged user" error message when you install SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3 Method 1 Change the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSSQLServer\Client\Connect To\DSQUERY value to DBNETLIB.I tried with windows login that have administrator privileges, and with sa password as well, but result is the same. Method 2 Make sure that the Ntfs Disable8dot3Name Creation registry key is set to 0. Validate Data Registry Keys(Effective Properties properties) (01) 2015-05-13 Slp: at Microsoft. But the replication is all running fine with no issues, any idea about this error and how to resolve this? I just see these at PMError executing sp_vupgrade_replication An error occurred during Service Master Key decryption And then this at PMService Master Key could not be decrypted using one of its encryptions. My servers are under Always On whenever I am updating the default directory using Management Studio, it doesn’t seem to be updating as when I refresh it, it goes back to old location. Could you please help me figure out what could be the reason behind this. The server is the publisher and the distributor is a different server. I updated the default log file path later when learned about the error.My question: Should I stop validation at "Check Files in Use" or "Ready to update"?
