Service Pack is abbreviated as SP, a service pack is a collection of updates and fixes, called patches, for an operating system or a software program. Many of these patches are often released before the larger service pack, but the service pack allows for an easy, single installation.
Patch – Publicly released update to fix a known bug/issue
Hotfix – update to fix a very specific issue, not always publicly released
