Software Update weirdness

in macOS edited January 2014
This bit of oddness occured both when I tried to upgrade from 10.1 > 10.1.1 and from 10.1.1 > 10.1.2.

I login as myself, an administrator, and go to Software Update to upgrade the OS. When the update's been downloaded and is ready to install I am told that the OS update requires 300 megs free on my startup drive and cannot continue.

Well, I believe I have plenty of disk space free.

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/disk0s9 19G 1.7G 17G 9% /

devfs 1.0k 1.0k 0 100% /dev

fdesc 1.0k 1.0k 0 100% /dev

<volfs> 512k 512k 0 100% /.vol

/dev/disk1s9 25G 8.8G 16G 35% /Volumes/Spanky

/dev/disk2s9 74G 8.4G 66G 12% /Volumes/Shady

I am not sure where this error is coming from, unless it just does not like my 20gig drive.

Has anyone experienced this?
