Keep getting message, "iTunes could not connect to iTunes store.  An unknown error occurred (-54)."  Any suggestions?

iTunes, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    == Error -54 ==

    From an OS9 reference, error -54 is a software lock on a file or a permissions error. (Some of the old codes still apply to OSX although there is no formal list of OSX error codes.)


    First, try simply restarting your computer.
