    when i run my software update for my macbook pro, and click on "install 1 item" (which is the 'Mac OS X update' 321MB), it asks me for my password, and everything, but then a screen comes up saying "the update can't be saved, A networking error has occurred: Cannot open file (-3001). Make sure you can connect to the Internet, then try again"
    I can't install it!
    what do i do?

    Search before posting and you'll likely find answers to most of your questions.

    If you take the time read the thread I posted, there are instructions on how to download the update.

    What about going to the apple download site and getting it from there? I know some prefer to get updates that way... and some really suggest strongly that we repair permissions before performing any update. Hope this helps...
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/
    That may be the link...
