SQL Server version is “SQL Server 2012(SP2-CU15-GDR)(KB3194725) – 11.0.5676.0(X64)”.
An error occurred when you applied SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 3 to the current server(see attached image)

–> Summary Log

Overall summary:
Final result: The patch installer has failed to update the shared features. To determine the reason for failure, review the log files.

Solution:

There can be various reasons you might be getting this issue, like a failure of a previous installation of SQL server may corrupt the registry, and this registry corruption may initiate this issue.

There seems to be no direct fix to this, so try:

– Uninstalling all the patches, and re-install them in sequence.

– Or, uninstall the whole SQL Server completely and install fresh again.
