I noticed that all of the Macs were unable to update via the Software Update server for specific updates. Mac OS 10.7.4 and Safari 5.1.7 downloaded and installed correctly but "MacBook Pro EFI Update 2.7" and "Thunderbolt Firmware Update" couldn't be installed.


I got the following error:


Downloading Thunderbolt Firmware Update

Package failed: The operation couldn’t be completed. (NSURLErrorDomain error -1100.)


I checked my server's software update service and saw that "MacBook Pro EFI Update 2.7" was missing from the list of updates but "Thunderbolt Firmware Update" is not.


I have two questions. Can I manually add Software Updates to the server? Secondly, does anyone know how to fix the error quoted above?


Thank you,


Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    you might have some issue with the .plist


    if you open terminal and type:

    sudo defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate


    you should be able to see all of the various keys and values that this plist contains. the first value -- CatalogURL -- should be your server name.


    start your research there. and, what happens, if you REMOVE your server and point instead to apple:

    sudo defaults delete /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate CatalogURL


    to put your server back type:

    sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate CatalogURL "http://your-server.yourdomain:8088/index.sucatalog"
