Did you try running this patch? It refers to BE 2010 R1 and not R2 which is what you are using.

I'd recommend running a repair of BE 2010 R2 first from Add/Remove Programs. Once done, try the upgrade again...

I have BE 2010 R2 version installed, and if I repair, can i loose any dates?

I'm installing fixes for R2 and then I will try to update to R3.

Even if install fails you will not loose any data.

Before proceeding with repair install stop SQL server BKUPEXEC service and make a 

copy of DATA and CATALOGS folder, located at X:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec

CraigV's picture depends. I've lost an entire BEDB due to a failed SQL Express installation so to say you won't lose data is a bit presumtuous. Always get copies of the mission-critical files of BE.

All the repair will do though, is fix the files that might be corrupted or missing in the installation itself.
