Software Update - internet connection good, can't find server?

I am attempting to update my Mac OSx software (from 10.4.8 to 10.4.9) but am running into trouble a few seconds in to the software update search.

This message appears -

this computer appears to have a working internet connection but cannot find "softwareupdate.local"

This has happened in several locations using both ethernet and airport.

Anybody?

Thanks!

You can go apple's web site and download all your update their.
http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/

You might want to update to 10.4.11 which is the latest for 10.4
Use the combo update for 10.4.11 or if you want the 10.4.9 combo.

I'm not sure why you are having trouble with connecting to apple software update. Try repairing your permissions with disk utility.
