OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Check For Software Updates Only Itunes / Random Other Updates Show Up But Not Security Updates
Mar 14, 2012
When I check for software updates only itunes and random other updates show up but not security updates or safari update. When i check installed updates I realized my last security update was 2011-004 and I still have safari 5.0.6.
I can't get the Firmware updates or any other software updates.I have an old MacBook (2006) which doesn't have an intel chip! and it keeps saying this: The Installer could not validate the contents of the CoreFP package.
I am trying to install the new updates for Aperture and iPhoto. When I tell software updates to check for updates, it tells me all my software is current. I know there is a new version of Aperture and iPhoto because I installed them two days ago on a different computer.
Got a suspicious email wanting security updates on my bank accounts. Didn't use the link in the email & didn't knowingly download anything from the email. Went to another server & accessed my bank account to get an address to forward the email to. Went back to my mail & found that the suspected phishing email had vanished. My bank says I most likely got a virus from the email, thinks my account(s) has been compromised & advised me to scan my computer for malware before trying to go to my account again.My Software update shows I have the latest security, I never got a message advising me of suspicios sites or downloads. So how do I check for a virus or malware???
When Flash Trojan was announced Apple sent 2 software updates. iMac downloaded and installed them via software update. (see attached graphic) Mac Mini did not and only advised that "that there is no new software and that software is up to date".
Info: iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
I've been working on a FireWired External Drive and Software update installed some SnowLeopard/midi/audio updates on the external drive. I then restarted going into the Mother ship that also has SnowLeopard to bring that up to date.
When i checked for updates using the software update there is message that sezs :
"Failed to check for update. There was a problem communicating with the web proxy server (HTTP)."
I am on line posting this message so it can't be an Internet server problem on the Mother ship ( the main Macintosh hard drive ).
What does that message really mean and how do i fix that?
I have a REV A MBA running 10.5.8. Since i got the machine, it takes forever to show available software. After clicking "software update" from the apple menu it sometimes takes 6 minutes to check if there's anything new. Is this normal?
I just found out that Apple is no longer providing security updates on Mac OS X 10.5. What can I do to keep my comupter safe? I bought my laptop in Sept. '08 and I am not inclined to fork over a couple of thousand dollars when I have a perfectly functioning laptop.
I am no longer receiving scheduled automatic security updates and unable to find the latest on the Apple site. I understand there are threats out there and am very reluctant to link onto any diagnosis' and cures unless through the Apple site.
Apple on Wednesday afternoon issued a number of updates, addressing high processor usage and other glitches in its 27-inch iMac, as well as various security updates for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
27-inch iMac updates
Two updates released Wednesday address issues with the 27-inch big screen iMac, released in October 2009.
"27-inch iMac EFI FW Update 1.0" is recommended for all systems with quad-core Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors. The update resolves an issue that caused high processor utilization when playing audio through the headphone output, and fixes a problem that prevented the display backlight from turning on after powering on the iMac.
The 2.1MB update is available for download from Apple. It requires Mac OS X 10.6.3 or later.
"27-inch iMac SMC Firmware Update 1.0" fixes Target Display Mode compatibility issues on the 27-inch desktop iMac. The 397KB update also requires Mac OS X 10.6.3 or later.
anyone with a 8600F scanner still works after updating to the latest security updates on osx? Mine stopped working after updating. I can still use the scanner in windows but not in osx. this is driving me nuts.
I have almost all my apps set to check for updates automatically. Most of them will most likely not update for a while. Does having all my apps set to update automatically slow down the computer. Seems like them checking every time will put a dent in my cpu usage.
Does anyone expect to see updates come to iLife 09 to extend support for OpenCL and Grand Central shortly after Snow Leopard is released? Or do you imagine this will be held off until iLife 10? iLife features some of the most resource intensive apps (iMovie, Garage Band, iPhoto) used by most users so I believe that Apple could really showcase the improvements brought to Snow Leopard from both OpenCL and Grand Central by doing this asap. Here's to hoping we don't have to wait long for this functionality.
On my mac, I can't do this! I don't even have the app store on my mac! I do the software update and it says no updates available but it is in Version: 10.6.8 i think. I need to update it and it wonk work. It is the earlier version of the Macbook Pro. I also have some audio problems like when I up the sound it has a cross and says its full. the only way to fix this is to do -SLEEP- and put in headphones then open it.
Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), I don't know if its leopard or lion
Attached is a picture of my iTunes. It says I have 12 apps ready to be updated but then when I click to get them it says there are none available. What does that mean? I definately know that there are updates ready.
I recently installed the latest itunes onto my intel-based imac and now when I play songs from my library after about 20 minutes of listening my screen shuts down but the music still plays for a couple of minutes. The computer doesnt completly shut down, in order to restart my computer I have to hold down the power button until the computer shuts down, then I can turn it back on?
