    It could be a problem to do with your Internet connection settings. Software Update will use whatever settings are in the Network preference pane.

    I accidentally left my proxy settings on when I was coming home, for example, and they stopped Software Update from connecting properly on my proxy-free network.

    Just a suggestion. Can't really help without knowing all the details. Good luck!

    Yea, MarcBook is right, probably your Internet or firewall settings.

    A tad bit irrelevant to the original post, but another annoying thing about software update is that it does not scan sub-directories. Perfect example, the new iMovie update just came out and I do indeed have iMovie 09 located in /Applications/ Music\ and\ Video/ and it wouldn't show up in software update until I put it back into /Applications... very annoying, but oh well!

    Anyone else with this issue?
