You can use this procedure
1. Open the Windows Update Services MMC
2. Select the All Updates View
Set the display to show the Approval status of 'Any except Declined' with a Status of 'Any'. Click Refresh.
3. Display the Supercedence Column
Right-click the column headers and select Supercedence.
4. Sort by Supercedence
Left-click on the Supercedece Column.
5. Select and Decline the Superceded Updates
The updates to be declined have one of two particular flowchart symbols for their updates pictured in the attached image.
Select the correct updates and Decline them by either right-clicking the selected updates and clicking decline or by pressing the decline button in the action pane.
6. Run the Server Cleanup Wizard
Make sure you have all options selected in the wizard and let it run.
It will delete the files from the declined updates.
7. OPTIONAL: Automatic Approval Options
In the automatic approval options, under the advanced tab, there is an option to automatically approve update revisions
for previously approved updates and subsequentially decline the now expired updates. I suggest you select them.

I keep in my mind this definition:
Updates newer versions of a product, or in other words, is no longer
applicable to older versions or configurations of a product. Updates can also
supersede other updates if modifications have been made to expand language
support. For example, a later revision of a product update for Microsoft Office
might remove support for an older operating system, but add additional support
for new languages in the initial update release.
The complete definition of Microsoft is here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc708465(v=ws.10).aspx
