    I am getting the same error. I got it right after running software update (updating iLife '08 and other Pro Apps). I actually came online to see if anyone else was having the same problem (glad its not just me). My guess is that Apple is messing around with the update server before the big day tomorrow.

    I think it is best to wait and see if goes away on its own.

    No problems with Tiger. Either the last round of updates broke software update, of different OS versions look to different servers.

    Or its just working now :)

    Excellent! So do we have to wait for Steve to flick the switch on the Leopard servers then? Shouldn't send out OSs to people on the other side of the world first then! :D

    oK, now I am getting nervous. As of 6:30am EST Software Update still isn't working. Anyone running Leopard with a working Software Update? Maybe it is not everyone.

    Relax! :rolleyes:

    Software Update worked perfectly OK a couple of days ago. They must just be doing something. It'll be back.

    (the only update in there BTW was a Remote Desktop Client update, hardly earth shattering stuff).

    I know everything will be working again. And there is a lot more in Software Update than that... that is if you did a clean install and installed iLife ect.

    I did a clean install.

    You're right about iLife though, that wasn't on there at the time so there probably will be more for that.

    As far as a clean install of the system though, the Remote Client was the only update.

    You're good. Thats all that was in the update for me. I didn't install iLife yet though, I hate booting from cd for some reason (bundled with iMac).

    You can just pop in the CD that came with your mac, navigate to where they store the packages, and install "Bundled Software.mpkg" (Pretty sure that's what it's called). No need to boot from CD.
