10.5: Solve a repair permissions issue after 10.5.8 update
Authored by: las_vegas on Aug 13, '09 07:17:19PM
I don't use Software Update because it has too many problems. The biggest one is attempting to update from an incomplete install file.

Apple's Software Update will never attempt an install of an incomplete install file. The first step after downloading the file is to check the checksum of the file. An incomplete file will always fail and will be rejected.

I have only once had a problem with an update from the automated update system and the problem was that the update failed to download every time. Manually downloading and installing that update solved the problem.
