    Mac OS X Tiger
    Version 10.5.7

    Everytime I try to update my Mac to 10.5.8 it will tell me I am unable to. I start the software update, it finishes downloading the update, it asks me to restart the macbook, and after restarting it, it will show me a message telling me that I am unable to update it. Also I have iTunes 9.0, and it requires Safari 4.0.3 to access the iTunes store. My Safari is stuck at 4.0.1 for some reason. I tried to install Safari 4.0.3, 4.0.4, and 4.0.5 but it will not allow me to do so because I need to update my Mac OS X Version to 10.4.11. But it's already 10.5.7
    What the hell's wrong with my macbook?

    Have you tried downloading the updates directly from Apple's website?

    How much hard drive space do you have? Normally it figures out it won't have enough before it commences the update, but it might be a cause if it runs out of space mid-upgrade.

    I have directly downloaded the disk mounts of the updates from the apple website. They don't work.
