Are your Software Update preferences set to check and download updates?
yea set to update automatically weekly
Go in and disable both settings. Restart the system. Go back in and reset back to enable both settings. Try to perform an update.
enter the following: defaults delete /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate CatalogURL
There is no (CatalogURL) default for the (com.apple.SoftwareUpdate) domain. Defaults have not been changed.
also i disabled both settings restarted and tried again...
trash the software update plist:
Navigate in the finder to:/Library/Preferennces/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist
just drag it into the trash.
to do this by terminal just type in: rm /Library/Preferennces/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist
this won't harm your comp at all. Just removes the update preferences.
rm: /Library/Preferennces/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist: No such file or directory
i also deleted the plist file AND IT WORKED YAY! THANKS GUYS1
NP glad it worked for ya
it worked once now its the same problem urgh
I would suggest you reload OS X. Just do an update with the most current version. Sounds like you have some sort of corruption with your system files. What version are you currently running on what Mac?
