Here is a problem I came across while trying to install Service Park 1(SP1) on Exchange 2007.
During the checking I was getting the following error:

You must be a member of the Exchange Organization Administrators group to upgrade the first Hub Transport server role in your organization to Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1.

Solution was very simple I needed to reboot exchange server and after reboot everything worked just fine.
