Download the hotfix containing a tool called CheckSUR, this tool will look into the servicing and package folders and fix any corrupted data the tool is listed under kb947821 it can be found at the following link http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=947821
If Anytime Upgrade still fails, disable User Account Control:

2. Change User Account Control Settings
3. Pull the Slider down to lowest level possible
4. Reboot the PC
5. Go through the "Anytime Upgrade" as normal

Try the following:
1. Disable any security software before attempting to upgrade
2. Make sure your computer is updated (devices and applications)
3. Disconnect any external devices before installing.

Type: CMD, from the results, right click CMD
Click 'Run as Administrator'
At the Command Prompt, type: chkdsk /r /f
