View Full Version : Has Apple "turned Off" Software Update For 10.2?

Hi guys.

We've got a couple of 15" 800MHz G4 iMacs at work here, all running 10.2.8 (no point in upgrading because their lease is expiring soon), but we've been having a problem with Software Update.

Basically, they can connect to the network fine and browse websites (via the proxy) no problems...but they won't connect to Software Update. It gives a "Software Update was unable to connect.....please check your config" error (or similar).

I figured it was a one-off, but I recently wiped one and re-installed 10.2 (for an unrelated reason) and had the same problem when I went to run Software Update.

Has anyone experienced this before? Could it be related to the proxy (ie: Software Update doesn't like going through it?) The proxy settings are all correct and all our 10.3 and 10.4 machines connect to Software Update via the proxy no problems.

Looks like you'll have to update, just so you can sell the machines.
