Running Mountain Lion 10.8.2.


I read about OS updates online, and I get system notifications for various software updates (iPhoto, iMovie, 3rd party applications, etc).  However, when the software update utility runs, it never actually finds any updates.  The only way I've been able to update the OS is through manual OS patch downloads.


Just minutes ago, iPhoto told me there was a new update.  I click the download update button, the Mac App Store update panel opens, and after a few moments says "No updates available," like always.  Why is software update so broken?
