I've been happily using Mountain Lion since its release on my late 2009 MacBook but the 10.8.1 update never showed up in Software Update, so I downloaded the pkg file from Apple. However, when I tried to install it I got to Destination Select and encountered the following message:
"OS X Update can't be installed on this disk. An error occurred while evaluating JavaScript for the package"
and I can go no further.

Any advice what to do next would be much appreciated.

If it were me, I'd backup, backup and reinstall ML.

Thanks for the suggestion, icant; it worked perfectly. I'm now sending you a list of some other areas of my life that need fixing....:D
