About 800xA Base 5.0.0 SP2 RU3h software

Dear sirs,

When I tried to reinstall "800xA Base 5.0.0 SP2 RU3h",

It gives me a message "Service Pack can only reinstalled with parent product, Use Repair in add/Remove program to reinstall the parent product", and when I tried the add/remove program, I didn't find icon change or remove, I found "rarely",

What is the problem then?

Attached some photos which show the problem

You have to click on the Base 5.0 SP2 on above the one you have selected on the picture or on the base 5.0 which is above the that. Their you have the option to add/remove and repair.
