I have seen that several times with different Java versions. Somehow the
Java installer sometimes cannot install over an existing version. I do
not deinstall bevore upgrading every time, but when I see something like
this on a client, I use psexec from the Sysinternals Suite to run on the

msiexec /qn /x {26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F832160nnFF} [replace nn with
Java revision]
net stop wpkgservice
net start wpkgservice

and then installation usually works.
