By loop i mean the soft do same stuff, all the time and non stop.

As i remember of previous update :

Ask update -> download -> install upadte -> Error message -> Ask update  -> install update -> Error message -> etc.
The specific error message is what is needed at this time.

I have the same problem. It just wont update itself. There is plenty of free space,  I manually deleted  update.xml + the second one .xml  + updates DIR  and it wont help!

I use Nightly Win32 edition on a Ramdisk from DATARAM, it is assigned as R: ! This happens on WinXP SP3 (CZ), properly maintained and clear system on my work computer.
I do not have this problem on Win7 x64 Prof.(ENG) with Nightly x64. :)

I get this error: 

The Update could not be installed (patch apply failed)
