TFS 2010 SP 1 fails with:

Product: Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010 – ENU – Update ‘KB2182621′ could not be installed. Error code 1603.

In my case the log file indicated that permissions to the Master database were missing. I made sure the setup user got sysadmin priviledges for the time of the SP install and it went through very smoothly.
