View Full Version : unable to install Java update

21st August 2010, 09:40 AM
All the mac's I have had, had always software updated without any troubles. That is until I tried to instal "Java for Mac OSX 10.6 Update 2"

I keep getting a message that "the update could not be expanded and may have been corrupted during downloading. The update will be downloaded and checked again the next time that the software update runs."

I have tried several times and cannot update it successfully. I have been able to include other software updates since. But this one keeps falling over.

Any suggestions?

Try checking for the half-downloaded item in the folders in /Library/Updates.

The Java update should be 061-7809.

Alternately, get it from the Apple site here:

Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 2 (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL972)
