Trying to update to 10.7.5 from 10.7.4 fails on about three different Macbooks I have.

 

I have tried through Software Update.

I have tried downloading the update from apple.com/downloads

I have tried downloading the combo update from apple.com/downloads

I have tried formatting the drive and reinstalling Lion and then repeating all of the above.

 

They all fail.

 

The most useful output I could get from it was using the installer command:

 

bash-3.2# installer -pkg ./MacOSXUpdCombo10.7.5.pkg -tgt /

installer: Package name is Mac OS X Update Combined

installer: Upgrading at base path /

2013-01-30 21:37:49.948 installer[612:7803] PackageKit: Missing bundle path, skipping: <bundle id="com.apple.airport.airportutility"></bundle>

2013-01-30 21:37:49.955 installer[612:7803] PackageKit: Missing bundle path, skipping: <bundle id="com.apple.PodcastCapture"></bundle>

2013-01-30 21:37:49.985 installer[612:7803] PackageKit: Missing bundle path, skipping: <bundle id="com.apple.NetworkUtility"></bundle>

2013-01-30 21:37:50.029 installer[612:7803] PackageKit: Missing bundle path, skipping: <bundle id="com.apple.XsanAdmin"></bundle>

installer: The upgrade failed (The Installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance.)

 

The missing bundles don't necessarily surprise me since they sound like fairly specialized applications. There seems to be no other indication of WHY it failed however, and no contact information to find out what to do next.

 

Help? This is affecting about 5 Macbooks that I have tested so far, so probably another 15 that I haven't tested yet.
