Hi all,

I've got a problem with Software Update. When I try to check for new updates (specifically the recent security update), I get the following error message:

Failed. Error occurred while checking.

I know it's possible to download these directly from Apple, but this is bugging me - does anyone have a solution?

Cheers.

Replying to myself to try and get a bit of coverage here... especially now that 10.2.8 is out, and I can't get it

Try deleting the

com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist file

Log out, log back in,

Then try it.
