    Hello all,

    I am at work and have limited time to respond to any suggestions today, but, will check back tomorrow around 12:00 (est).

    This is becoming urgent as programs throughout my Mac are stopping because Software Updater is not downloading and installing any update - java, utilities, bug fixes, and I can't seem to find package downloads like one could find on a PC. (still somewhat a Mac noob)

    This all started in this thread:

    Originally I was looking at running a program through rosetta, when, I discovered that my Software Updater has never successfully ever updated.

    Mac OS

    List of updates that i need now.

    I've done everything that people suggest.

    - ~/Library/Caches/ where ~ is your home folder) and delete them
    - Try Software Updater from a different user
    - Am Administrator of computer

    Anywho, I'm frustrated beyond belief and have no idea how to fix this problem.

    Any other suggestions and / or help is very much appreciated.
