10.3: Repair Java after 10.3.1 and Java 1.4.1 installs Install
I waited for Apple's updated Java 1.4.1 for Panther after an upgrade left mine in the dysfunctional state described in an earlier hint. After installing the update today, I decided to check to make sure it was working, and I got the same error. I went to Apple's Developer page and read the originally proposed solutions. I then removed the preference file from Terminal:
 % sudo rm /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Resources/version.plist 
Then I ran the updater again. Upon restart, the error message was gone. Of note, I downloaded the updater to disk from Software Update, but you should also be able to run it from /Library/Receipts.

This is a response posted at regarding a similar problem I encountered with Java 1.4.1 and Jaguar 10.2.8.

Java 1.4.1 is only available for 10.3. The Jaguar version was withdrawn some time ago. There are two 2003-11-19 security updates, one for 10.3 and one for 10.2.8. Be sure you have the correct one. You must have 10.2.8 installed to for this security update.

QT 6.4 has been reported to cause some problems in some systems. You should probably remain with 6.3 if you continue to have problems with 6.4.
