There have been a little confusion around the name convention of the service pack for this release of SCCM. In sort terms if you have SCCM 2012 R2 the service pack name is SP1 and if your running SCCM 2012 SP1 it’s called SP2 but you use the SCCM 2012 SP2 media to upgrade from SCCM 2012 R2 to SCCM 2012 R2 SP1. The following is from Microsoft which explains the various upgrade scenarios.

Your current installation is: Your options include:
None Install:·         System Center 2012 Configuration Manager without Service Packs

·         System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1

·         System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP2

·         System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

System Center 2012 Configuration Manager without Service Pack Upgrade to:·         System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1
System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1 Upgrade to:·         System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP2

·         System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP2 Upgrade to:·         System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1
System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager Upgrade to:·         System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1

(To upgrade, you install the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP2 media, which automatically updates the site to System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1.)
