    I had the same problem. Moving the iPhoto app to the Applications folder solved it for me.


    Thanks for the tip.

    I had the same problem - I have a 2 week old Macbook Air with the preinstalled Lion & iLife.  The iPhoto app was 9.1.5 - I had to update to the latest Lion first with Software Update, then after that installed, run Software Update again and it found the iPhoto update to 9.2.

    Not sure if you still need an answer, but I had the exact same problem, and here was the solution that worked for me:


    Your iPhoto app has to be in your "Applications" folder.  It can't be in a subfolder that you created.  As soon as I moved iPhoto out of the subfolder and back into the main Applications folder, clicking on Software Update from the Apple menu recognized it right away and updated to version 9.2.


    I'm running Lion 10.7.2 and iLife 11 was pre-installed.


    Hope this helps.
