No idea really, but does it still happen after rebooting?

I am having the very same problem.  I have FireFox installed on two
PC, work & home.  It started happening at work, and I assumed maybe I
don't have certain Admin rights.  However, same day I went home and
the exact same message, some of the updates were unable to install and
it would try again after restarting FireFox.  Something is clearly
wrong with the new update for v. 2.0.0.6.  Hopefully the good folks at
Mozilla are working on it.

For the OP:

Two suggestions, based on observations of remedies posted here before.

First, are you running Thunderbird at the time you are trying to update?
 Someone had posted that TB and FF share a/some dll files and that this
caused them a problem until they shut down TB.

The other suggestion is to try turning off your anti-virus program
during the upgrade.

For deathstar:

Are you referring to the *program* update, or *extension* updates?

I had this problem - already discussed on several threads.  In my case
I am almost sure it was SpyBotS&D Teatimer (the resident registry
protection program that comes with SpyBot) that stopped the
overwriting of firefox.exe by the updater.  But before someone
suggested this cause, I had managed to update to 2.0.0.6 on the
affected computers by doing it in Windows Safe Mode.  2.0.0.6 has been
fine since then.

Yep. Teatimer locked up my TB and FF as well.
I used unlocker : > 
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/Unlocker.shtml
to verify and unlock, and then could install downloaded packs.
As to why teatimer does this??
I have emailed Spybot about it, and if I get a response,
I will report about it here.

Thanks all, I disabled my anti-virus & spybot.  Then I ran the update
from mozilla, and it worked.  Thanks for the bump in the right
direction

Well, for what it is worth, the response from the Spybot support group:
Its not completely clear to me, what they mean, because I never click away
any alarm from teatimer, but check it and then allow/disallow the action.
