If there are too many files in the C:\Windows\Temp folder, delete the ones not being locked / used and try running update again.

Just to add to my colleague @Marcos comment, I would suggest the following additional steps:

  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Run Windows Update and apply any pending updates, including optional ones.
  3. Restart the computer, even if Window Update did not require it.
  4. Now delete the contents of the C:\WINDOWS\TEMP and the %LOCALAPPDATA%\TEMP directories.
  5. Re-run the update of ESET Smart Security Premium from its user interface.

If issues persist, let us know.
