    I just bought my Mac and can't install the Mac OSX combined update...

    Anyone else have this problem and know of a fix?

    How are you trying to install the 10.7.3 update? Do you get any error message you can share the content with us?

    I am trying to install the update via the software updater. I get a message saying the the file can't properly expand and is/or corrupt when rebooting to do the install.

    Do you have enough free HDD capacity?
    Have you tried this version yet?

    you want to make sure that you are plugged in - some updates don't install if you do not have mag safe connected

    I did have the same problem too. I just ended up going to apples website and downloaded the combo update from the website. Had no problems doing it that way.

    Isn't it because Apple disabled the Delta update from their servers and the Combo update is the fix?

    :) It's only been a week and seems to have stayed below the radar for most users.

    Enjoy your new MB Air!
