Re: unable to do software update in OS X Lion

How you were attempting to get the update(Software update or MAS)? Try Downloading the combo update and attempt to install it?

(MAS unable to work; you require to either make use of Software Update or basically download and install it physically).

Re: unable to do software update in OS X Lion

I have attempt software updates from the apple menu and also downloaded the Lion updates from the support WebPages in development within the application folder, from the desktop and from external drives however without any achievement.

In the interim I entirely erased the disk, reinstalled 10.6 with all updates, and reinstalled 10.7 although still I am unable to update 10.7.1 and 10.7.2. Anyone who can help me to overcome this issue

Re: unable to do software update in OS X Lion

I consider you will require erasing your hard drive using the original install DVD, reinstall Snow Leopard, and then pay for Lion at the MAS. You merely cannot update a pre-release version - it won't work; you'd have to have the GM version installed. After purchasing and installing the existing Lion version obtainable, you should be capable to update it (if required).

Re: unable to do software update in OS X Lion

Erased the disk, reinstalled Snow Leopard and all 10.6 updates. This does not resolve the trouble. Our institutional OS X Lion license will setup and update well on other Macs Nevertheless not on this Mac mini. I observe that this issue is common and many people seems to be affected with this problem.

Go to menu > About this Mac > click on "Version" to show "Build".
Take a screenshot (shift-3) and post it by choosing the camera icon on the menu bar .

Re: unable to do software update in OS X Lion

According to Mac Support community,the build is not developer version. I installed it on my Mac Pro and Mac book air with all updates, Nevertheless not on mac mini. I have now received an installer version of 10.7.2 lion ,which i will attempt to install.I imagine this will recognize coming updates on mac Mini.
