    I am trying to install the 10.10.5 update. It seems impossible. Every time I click "update" in the AppStore and confirm the reboot, a dialog pops up: The available updates have changed. When I click "Show details", nothing happens and the update gets added to the installed updates.

    Maybe the download is broken? How can I force the AppStore to re-download the patch? Can I install the update anyway? Where does the AppStore put its downloads?

    Open the temp folder by typing "open $TMPDIR../C/" in Terminal. Remove the files inside com.apple.appstore folder. You can also try to synchronise your system time (system preferences) which can also lead to update problems.

    Try downloading and installing the 10.10.5 combo update: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1832?locale=en_US.

    Thanks
    Beginning to think of ignoring it and wait for the next OS X iteration probably coming in a month?

    Thanks.
    I may go this route as I am trying to avoid huge file downloads.

    This is ill-advised. Using only this package won't apply any relevant firmware update and the package may install in situations where it shouldn't.
    When Apple provides a standalone download, that should always be used, or Software Update should just be allowed to download the appropriate updates if it works.

    ITunes 12.3 is also doing the same on my Macbook.

    Any help?
