Software Updates

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm very new to Macs to I'll apologize for my ignorance in advance.

I opened iTunes and was told there was a new version and did I want to upgrade. I said yes. Everything seemed to run smoothly and it looked like it was downloading other software updates in addition to iTunes, but I could be mistaken. All of a suddenia separate box opens and says I need to close iTunes, so I do, but the box telling me to close iTunes doesn't go away. The software update continues and continues and continues but never seems to finish. I end up quitting the installation.

Any help would be appreciated, and again, sorry if this is a stupid post.

Are you updating using a wifi connection ?
That can be problematic on occasion for any computer.

It's always best to be hard wired but heck I update using wifi all the time.
That said, I have had the odd update fail.

Try it again without any programs running and let it run through to completion.

You did quit iTunes right? Or did you just close the window?
