I have a two-month old MacBook Pro at version 10.5.6 and have successfully done software updates several times. I have access to the internet over an Apple Airport via a cable modem.
Recently, I noticed that all my software updates fail with the following dialog:
The console reports the following:
Software Update cant connect to the update server. Make sure youre connected to the Internet, then try again.
I searched on the net and found that others have had this problem on the net and followed their suggested advice (to no avail) to delete com.apple.softwareupdate plist in
2/14/09 7:32:01 PM Software Update Error Domain=NSURLErrorDomain Code=-1004 UserInfo=0x8b0f80 "cant connect to host"
I have also run Onyx & Yasu. But that did not help either.
Finally, we have another MacBook Pro - about 1.5 years old that is not having this problem.
Does anyone have any recommendations which would allow me to successfully perform updates?
