    G'day,

    I took advantage of the free Mavericks 10.9.1 upgrade a few months ago. Yay Apple.

    At some point after that, I successfully upgraded to 10.9.2.

    Now I'm trying to upgrade to 10.9.3, as the App store made me aware of the upgrade, but - I get an error when I click the Update button:

    Googling around, I see I'm not the only person to experience this since Mavericks came along (or even before that)... But no real solutions for fixing the problem...

    How do I perform this update?

    (I've read that even if you directly download the update file, it wont instal if you try to use it)

    Cheers

    cosmic

    Super User?

    The only fix I can think of this is to try opening Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app) and typing the following commands:

    Code:
    cd /Applications/App\ Store.app/Contents/MacOS
    sudo ./App\ Store
    Then type your password and try to update again.

    The file couldnt be saved because you dont have permission 513

    https://discussions.apple.com/message/24276483#24276483

    go to terminal and go to /var/folders/zz/
    once there list the content (ls -la) and check the ownership for folder i.e zyxvpxvq6csfxvn_n00000s0000068

    it should be: drwxr-xr-x+ 3 _softwareupdate _softwareupdate 102 20 Aug 02:17 zyxvpxvq6csfxvn_n00000s0000068

    not: drwxr-xr-x+ 4 root wheel 136 14 Oct 15:53 zyxvpxvq6csfxvn_n00000s0000068
