    Hello,

    I tried to go a software update on my mac because I wanted to move up to 10.5, but when I check for updates a window pops up saying:

    "A networking error has occurred: timed out (-1001). Make sure you can connect to the internet, then try again"

    And I'm able to type this thread this very moment. LOLWUT?

    Im so confused >.< Maybe I put a setting on something that caused this and the WoW Installer error to occur? If I did then I wouldn't remember anyway.

    Thanks a lot MR,

    -Devin :apple:

    /Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist

    Drag that file to the Desktop.
    Now try SoftwareUpdate
    Better?
    If so, Trash the file, as you now have a new one that is not corrupt.

    I think you may be mistaken there. To upgrade to 10.5 requires you to have 10.4.x or below and a Leopard install cd.

    Thank you for your correction, but that still doesn't answer why I'm getting this error.

    Have you have look at this from apple's discussion forum?
