woah...haven't seen that one.
Are you in an account with administrator privileges? ...Although I'm not sure it should matter.
Have you tried repairing permissions?
I am in as administrator. have not tried to use repairing permissions. By the way what is repairing permissions?
Permissions tells who can write to which file, who can read which file, and so on. When they get messed up things like this happen.
How would they get messed up and how can I fix it.
My MacBook is 2 weeks old
Go to your Applications folder -> Utilities -> and open Disk Utility.
Select your Hard Drive on the left and click "Repair Permissions" (towards the bottom).
Restart your computer (you may not need to, but it never hurts) and try Software Updater again.
Hope that works.
BTW: Sometimes permissions just get messed up; it's nothing you did wrong.
The following is a section of the report:
Resources/ContextualMenuItemsFolderIcon.icns, should be -rw-r--r-- , they are -rwxr-xr-x
Owner and group corrected on ./System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/ContextualMenuItemsFolderIcon.icns
Permissions corrected on ./System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/ContextualMenuItemsFolderIcon.icns
Permissions differ on ./System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/ControlPanelDisabledFolderIcon.icns, should be -rw-r--r-- , they are -rwxr-xr-x
Owner and group corrected on ./System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/ControlPanelDisabledFolderIcon.icns
Permissions corrected on ./System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resourc
I'm trying again now.

Good that it helps someone. There are plenty of people who've said that it does nothing but make people feel better.
