Apple Confirms Mac OS X 10.5.6 Update Issues

Maximize the capabilities of your Mac!Apple has confirmed there is a glitch in the update system "when attempting to update software using Software Update in Mac OS X 10.5." The company says," The update process may stop responding while "Configuring installation" is visible in the update window. This can occur if Software Update attempts to install an update that was only partially downloaded."

Apple has posted a resolution, telling users to delete the partial download from the "/Library/Updates" folder. To find the folder click the Finder icon in the Dock, from the Go menu choose "Go to Folder" and type: /Library/Updates. Click Go. The /Library/Updates folder should open, allowing you to select all the contents of this folder and move them to the Trash. Use Software Update to install the update again or you can download the standalone installer or the full combo installer

As far as we know the new work around should fix many of the issues that we reported earlier this week. If the standalone update work doesn't work then I'd suggest trying the larger combo installation.
