    so this might be a stupid question but I cant seem to figure out how to upgrade to mac os 10.8.1 from 10.8. I went and clicked on "software update..." from the apple menu and it brought me to the updates section of the mac app store. Updating to mac os 10.8.1 was not listed. I then went to mac os mountain lion in the app store. The button says "download" instead of "update" (I assume it works the same as iOS and shows update when the app needs to be updated). I click download and I get a warning saying I am already running 10.8 and if I still want to download. When going to "about this mac" it says I am running mac os version 10.8 so I have not updated it yet.

    I also checked software update this morning and all there was for an update for my printer and I knew 10.8.1 had been released. So I went into the macupdate site and downloaded it from there. I don't know why it didn't show when I checked software update......
