Update 8 patch 118833-36 is causing SCF errors

Seems when updating from update 7 to update 8, everything seems fine, but when we try from update 3 we have problems.
My guess is that it is because SCR is not installed or has a pre-req.
Also tried running update3 to update7 and then 8 but still a problem.
See detail below.
