Keep getting this error while trying to update
As do I.
Wait until tomorrow - it's either a buggy updater or Apple's servers are overloaded at the moment.
yup im getting it on my mac pro and my mac book pro.
not sure what it is.
Yeah, got this error on the last time Apple Inc. updated OSX. It mysteriously fixed itself the day after. So, it is probably an error on their part.
Try the direct download from here.
error still persisting
Okay, as I thought, the error just disappeared for me the next day. So, just be a little patient and it should go away. If it persists, use the manual updates from Apple Inc.'s website.
it's working already
Option for NSURLErrorDomain error avoidance
I solved this by temporarily disabling my anti-virus/malware product.
I use Kaspersky, which is generally excellent, and performs url inspection.
I still need to dig in to determine why software-update checks in the AppStore app trigger an intercept by Kaspersky.
AntiVirus apps have been known to cause various problems on OS X. Macs are not immune to malware, but no true viruses exist in the wild that can run on Mac OS X, and there never have been any since it was released over 10 years ago. The only malware in the wild that can affect Mac OS X is a handful of trojans, which can be easily avoided by practicing safe computing (see below).
3rd party antivirus apps are not necessary to keep a Mac malware-free, as long as a user practices safe computing, as described in the following link. Read the What security steps should I take? section of the Mac Virus/Malware FAQ for tips on practicing safe computing.
