Are you using the combo update or the regular? You must use the combo.

Also, did you partition your drive lately?

Yeah, the delta file (the one you originally downloaded) only holds the packages to update from the previous OS point release - 10.4.5 to 10.4.6 - whereas the combo file can update from any previous version of the same version of Tiger, from 10.4.0. :)
