Yesterday, I was about to install a couple of updates when I realized that they'd force me to restart. So I closed out Software Update and went along with my business. I also decided to change the short name of my account, as I took over my brother's and wanted to change it.Today, I saw that iTunes 9.1 had come out and ran Software Update and lo and behold, Software Update stalls with nearly no progress and hops around the dock. I switched to Software Update and it tells me: "Software Update can't check for updates because of a network problem." and under that "Software Update can't connect to the update server. Make sure you're connected to the Internet, and then try again."
When trying to run the update i get "Software Update can't find the update server. Make sure youâ€™re connected to the Internet, then try again."does anyone know how to fix this. its driving me nuts. Information: MacBook Pro Mac OS X (10.5.2)

we use the Software Update Server Service on our XServe with Mac OS X 10.6.4.Nearly all works great, even we have no problems with client updating though we're having 10.4, 10.5 und 10.6 client systems. But at the Server Admin tool where you can administrate the available updates the Xcode 3.2.2 update isn't able to activate. It's alreay downloaded, but i only see it if i click the little update button on the right side under the list of available updates and then after hooking the checkbox of it and clicking "Save" it's gone again, until i refresh the list once again of the aforesaid update button where it will be shown as unchecked again. I don't understand what here the problem is. All other updates aren't accompanied of those phenomenons. Software Update Server Log has no errors if i check the Xcode Update and system.log only says "Host configuration updated", any time i'm trying to activate this update.I'm using Server Admin Tools 10.6.3 and tried locale on the server machine as well as remote on my macbook without noticeable differences.I hope anyone can help or give a tip/trick.

(it says update via PC Suite, and when I connect to the PC, it says I already have V12). Why can't I get rid of it from the phone update page?

I recently replaced my MacBook Pro's (13-inch, Mid 2012) default hard drive with a third party SSD. I'm not sure if this would have any affect on it, but I can't upgrade to OS X 10.7.4. I used Lion Recovery Disk Assistant to install Lion on the drive and to bring it up to 10.7.3, and when it was finished, I checked Software Update and there was no update for 10.7.4. I downloaded the update directly from the Apple website (both the client and the combo updates) and neither of them will allow me to update! I get a message in the Installer that says, "Mac OS Update Combined can't be installed on this disk. This volume does not meet thre requirements for this update." Again, I'm not sure if this has to do with the third party SSD I installed or not. Other than the inability to update the OS, the SSD works wonderfully.

Mac OS 10.4.2 G4 (AGP) I just moved to a new home and unfortunatly my fast internet connection through DSL (3.0 Mbits/sec) had to be changed to something a lot slower running over DirecWay satellite. Whenever I run the software update utility, I get a dialog box that pops up and says, "A networking error has occured: bad server response (-1011). Make sure you can connect to the Internet, then try again. Software Update can't check for updates because of a network problem." Diagnostics pass, doing standard Internet tasks works just fine, as a matyer of fact, I can connect to the internet, surf, download email, etc. There is nothing different about the system other then I use a different internet provider. I'm wondering does Software Update look for a certain connection speed before timing out? I never got the (-1011) error before moving over to DirecWay.
Everytime I try to download software that my retina macbook needs, it will crash during download. Says download was corrupt. Getting very upset.

A few weeks back I got an email from RIM telling me an update was available to download via the update website. I followed the instructions and successfully updated my Bold to .247. Not long after this I received another email from RIM telling me a new update was available. Again I went to the website but this time I get the following message when I connect my Blackberry device to my computer to update the device softeware: "You cannot update your software using this system as your device is currently activated on BlackBerry Enterprise Server or BlackBerry Professional Software. Please contact your administrator for updates. Or check for updates from your carrier service provider" I am not on BES and don't know why this method is now not working. I have searched the forums but can't find an answer. I know I am not the only one experiencing this problem as there is a thread on Crackberry with others that have the same issue. Unfortunately no-one has posted an answer yet.
I got some eMacs for cheap and am currently cleaning them up. When I try to run Software Update on them, I get the message that says "Software Update can't find the update server. Make sure you are connected to the internet, then try again." These computers are definitely connected to the internet as I can browse from them. Is it possible that they are looking for an old update server? They're running 10.4.7 and 10.4.8. I've tried deleting the com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist file as described here but that didn't work.
While trying to update my apps this morning, the 9700 hung up, as did the Desktop software.I rebooted both. The device works partially but I am missing key features like the browser.
