Intel Mac :: Software Update - In All Its Forms - Fails?

Mar 18, 2012

Whenever I click on the Apple logo and Software Update, the progress bar gets to about 20% in 3 or 4 seconds and then never moves again. I've left it for over an hour, no change. If I go to Boot Camp Assistant and try to Download the latest Windows support software from Apple, it gets to about 5% in 3 or 4 seconds and then never moves again. I can download from the web and other internet based services work. I am running Lion 10.7.3 on a 2011 iMac. I've tried creating a new user. I've also tried starting in Safe Mode. I have reinstalled Lion. No change.

Software :: Update Fails To Connect To The Internet

Aug 12, 2005

Mac OS 10.4.2
G4 (AGP)

I just moved to a new home and unfortunatly my fast internet connection through DSL (3.0 Mbits/sec) had to be changed to something a lot slower running over DirecWay satellite. Whenever I run the software update utility, I get a dialog box that pops up and says, "A networking error has occured: bad server response (-1011). Make sure you can connect to the Internet, then try again. Software Update can't check for updates because of a network problem."

Diagnostics pass, doing standard Internet tasks works just fine, as a matyer of fact, I can connect to the internet, surf, download email, etc. There is nothing different about the system other then I use a different internet provider. I'm wondering does Software Update look for a certain connection speed before timing out? I never got the (-1011) error before moving over to DirecWay.

OS X :: Software Update Fails To Find Internet Connection

Sep 3, 2009

I have a Dual 1.8 GHz Power PC G5 and am running 10.4.11. When I select software update it says, "software Update can't connect to the update server. Make sure you are connected to the internet..." "Software Update can't check for updates because of a network problem." However, my internet connection works fine for everything else. I do have two peripheral drives connected. One of them had the same system as my main drive. However, the problem persists even when they are disconnected and I reboot. I can get the updates if I reboot from the peripheral.

Software :: OS X Update Fails - Volume Does Not Meet Requirements

Apr 16, 2010

When I downloaded a upgrade package from Apple [URL] for the Mac OS X v10.6.2 Update, it failed to install on my hard drive. The installation program says: "Mac OS X Update Combined can't be installed on this disk. This volume does not meet the requirements for this update." According to the Disk Utility, the Partition Map Scheme is GUID Partition Table. Some people have listed this as a requirement. What is the real reason for the failure?

QuickTime :: 10.1 Fails Since Lion Update - Required Codec Not Available

Mar 20, 2012

Since updating to Lion, and subsequently to QuickTime 10.1, many movies that worked fine before won't open now. I get an error that says, "A required codec is not available." Two things make this even more frustrating:

1. Some movies of the same type still open just fine. I can't seem to find a pattern that links the ones that won't open.
2. The movies that won't open are still available to preview in Finder. If they will play in Finder, why not in QuickTime? Isn't it just a QickTime "plug-in" that plays them in the Finder?

MacBook Pro :: Fails To Boot Properly After EFI Firmware 27 Update

Apr 16, 2012

I have a strange boot issue having (tried) to install EFI 2.7 update.When I restart the laptop, it 'chimes', displays a grey screen, then chimes, displays a grey screen, forever. I hit the bower (off) button for 5 secs or thereabouts, and restart, same thing. I do this 4 times and finally it reboots.But the EFI update still appears as needing to be installed (software update tells me it is not installed). Update history shows however that it IS installed.I can go through this process any number of times. I now have Software Update history showing quite a few installs opf the EFI 2.7 update.If I just do a restart without installing, I also go through the same fail to restart / fail to start / ... / eventually restart sequence.

So it seems now that the laptop will only start after 4 failed restarts and finally it starts. After starting it all appears to be perfectly fine.Nothing strange in the console logs that I can see.The failed reboots don't seem to register in the console logs - I suspect that the failure to restart is pretty early on in the boot sequence, well before it tries to load any semblance of the OSX kernel. It is almost as if it is trying to boot from someplace other than the disk ... until eventually it gives up and tries the disk. (I have tried booting with and without network cable - no difference) I don't know enough about mac bootup sequences to know if there is some config/setting that is screwed up causing this odd behaviour.

Mac Mini :: After Last Update Wired Keyboard Fails - No Longer Responds

Apr 2, 2012

I have a Mac mini (~2008) running Snow Leopard.I updated my software today (haven't done this in probably several months) and immediately afterword, my Apple aluminum wired keyboard no longer responds. (The mouse when attached through the keyboard also no longer responds.)However, the keyboard still functions just fine on a separate MacBook Pro that I have, it just won't work on the Mac Mini. (I tried different USB ports with no difference.)

I wasn't smart enough to write down what upgrades actually occurred prior to my last update, but there were only 4 items (I think one was Safari, one was iTunes).If there are no better ideas, I guess I will have to try a system restore from Time Machine which predates my latest bad "update". I'd rather not have to go there if I don't have to.

Intel Mac :: SuperDrive Fails When Burning Dvd's

May 18, 2012

This has been happening consistently when I try to burn DVD's, during this time the drive stalls and I am not able to eject. (Possibly because software is trying to write with faulty hardware maybe?) The error message changes if I try to burn DL DVD 's. Also CD's often fail while burning some do complete. Errors also occur with Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere CS5 and DVD Studio Pro.

Mac Mini :: Intel Headphone Jack Fails Intermittently

Mar 26, 2007

My headphone jack fails intermittently. I have speakers hooked up to it and sometimes sound will not play through the speakers. Even if I disconnect the speakers and plug in headphone sound does still not play through the headphones. I have even tried restarting and that does not work. In my system preferences (In Sound Panel) it shows that something is connected to the headphone jack. I have already had the entire logic board replaced once (under warranty) and that seemed to fix the problem for a couple months. If I wait about a day or less magically the speakers start working again. This has happend twice. Has anyone else had this problem? I have about 2 weeks left on my warranty. It almost seems like it is a software problem now, but I am not sure.

OS X :: Filling Out PDF Forms?

Apr 14, 2007

my Dad has to fill out some forms and they are available online in PDF format. He can edit them in Safari, but once we save the forms we are unable to edit them. The weird thing is when I first save it I could edit it, but once I saved it again it wouldn't let me change anything. This is very strange, I've tried Preview and Adobe Reader.

OS X :: Filling Out Pdf Forms In Preview

Feb 10, 2008

I downloaded the latest tax forms from the IRS in pdf form, and filled out all my tax information using preview. When I finished, I saved the form, but all the data I entered was lost. Can you not fill out pdf forms in preview? I did find a workaround. I filled in some data, then "printed" to a pdf file, and that saved all the entered data. Any insight into this issue?

OS X :: Websites Won't Accept Forms When Using Safari?

Sep 24, 2010

Today (in the latest version of Safari, of course) I repeatedly tried to fill out a captcha form, and later a password form on different website. Both forms went through fine in Firefox. Is this a common problem or will I have to experiment with deleting preferences, etc.?

Also: I tried a login at another website, which worked fine. But the captcha and the other password form refuse to work.
