Is this possible "Single-Request/Multiple-Response"
The client sent a Soap Request for update files, and receive these files in different response.

Client Request ----->
Happy Client <----- Response 1 File 1
Happy Client <----- Response 2 File 2

Web services operate with a request-response model where the client must submit a request for every response. If you want to return two separate files you could:
return them as multiple attachements
zip them together and return as a single attachement
have the return provide FTP links to download the files separately
... probably lots of other options
