    An obtuse corner of the Triangle
    Here's the situation:
    I have an old 800 mhz iMac (dome) that I am going to sell. I wiped/loaded a clean install of Leopard 10.5 on it.

    I clicked the software update and get this message (fairly quickly):

    "A networking error has ocurred.
    The operation could not be completed.
    (NSURLErrorDomain error - 1100) (-1100)
    Make sure that you can connect to the internet, then try again."

    I googled it but no help.

    So, I went to Apples site and downloaded the combo update for 10.5 - 10.5.6 (668 MB total) When I mount it and run the installer, I get to the part where I select the volume.. and theres an exclamation point over the (only) volume. So I cant' install the update either!!! :mad:

    The error reads:
    "You cannot install Mac OS X Update Combined on this volume ERROR_INSTALL"

    I've deleted the Software Update preference file.

    I could use a little advice - thanks.
