SUAFU is an acronym that stands for "Situation unchanged, all fouled up," which is a variation of the more common SNAFU military acronym. It is used to say that nothing has changed from the previous predicament and that it's still messed up.
The acronym is typically used to reply to people who are checking in, asking how things are going after some sort of harrowing experience. It's a rather gloomy acronym since it means that no positive progress has been made in the situation.
