OSX 10.5.6 Update: “Configuring Installation” Bug Fix
After attempting to update my own laptop running OS X 10.5.5 and several iMacs earlier this week, it was apparent that there was a bug during the 10.5.6 update installation.
Apple has acknowledged the issue and presented users with an official recommendation that includes “Force Quitting” (cmd-opt-esc) the Software Update and removing any current contents from the /Library/Updates folder, then again performing the update.
Apple really needs to modify the Software Update application so that it doesn’t allow partially downloaded updates to occur. Serious duh-age here. That’s like taking your dog for a walk before it’s fully born.
