    Hi, I recently tried to do a software update on my MacBook and I got this message:

    "Software Update can't check for updates because of a network problem.

    Software Update can’t connect to the update server. Make sure you’re connected to the Internet, and then try again."

    The internet connection is working fine and I haven't really done anything to my laptop since the software update was last working. Switching the connection off then on again is about the extent of my knowledge on this, so any help would be much appreciated.

    Could be that your connection was down, or that the apple system was down.

    Just try again later.

    Check the problem in another user account.

    If you only have 1 user, then turn on the guest account.

    This will tell you if it's a system issue, or a user issue.

    I know this might be a silly question, but I assume that you've rebooted?

    This is somewhat related to a Software Update issue I'm having on my Macs at work on Snow Leopard. Software Update finds and then appears to download the updates but then won't run them. I've tested on 9 machines. BUT, if I connect to a network outside our domain, everything runs fine!

    Weird.
