    stuck on this dialog prompt.

    how long were any of you seeing this? I'm getting really frustrated. tried reinstalling iTunes, but couldn't figure out how, even on the apple website.

    any help would be appreciated.

    I've been stuck on this for awhile now too. I've been trying to get the build from third-party sites but they seem to be jammed up as well. I'm thinking that 11:00 PM tonight might be a better time to do this.

    It's most likely not on your end. The servers are probably getting hammered right now.
