    Well for one, none of the updates showed up in Sofware Updates, so I downloaded them manually.

    Upon delivery (finished downloading) they immediately started up, but all three Keynote, Pages, and Numbers Updaters said the same thing:

    "An eligible (Keynote, Pages, Numbers) application was not found in the location /Applications."

    Uh, trust me, It's there. Any ideas?

    Did you move them from the iWork '08 folder, or rename the folder?

    Yup, I had same problem. Reason was that I had taken the applications out of their original iWork '08 folder and simply put each application in the application folder.

    You need to restore the iWork '08 folder into Applications, then drag Pages, Keynote, and Numbers into the iWork '08 folder. Even if you deleted the original folder, just make a new one with the same name, and it'll work fine once you drag the apps back into the folder.
