For some reason when i try to patch the game from 1.0 to anything higher the update just stops and says "Old file not found. However a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match". What the hell does that mean! I don't understand because i just installed Oblivion so the only files that are there are the default files i haven't changed anything. Thanks for reading
Sorry to double post but after a fourth installation and trying the patches again, they all stop working on 13%. I really don't understand it because i can play the game fine and i'm not missing any files. So if anyone has ever encountered this problem before please post a solution.

Stupid question, but are you downloading the patches from a site or getting them from the "Knights of the Nine" or "Shivering Isles" discs?

Do you have any mods installed prior to patching? If so, you will have to reinstall the game.
I DL'd the patches from filefront and only patched Oblivion, and no i didn't have any mods left on. However i have now fixed the problem. I simply Dl'd another patch from TES official website. Even though the patches i original DL'd said they were English they were not the same as the new one i DL'd (Many people have encountered similar problems it would seem). Well at least now it's patched, thanks for replying anyway, much appreciated.
