Just bought the new MacBook Pro, and cannot install iPhoto until OS X is updated to 10.8.2.  When trying to install the update, I get this message:  "OS X Update can't be installed on this disk. This volume does not meet requirements for this update".  Please help.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities


    You are trying to update to OS X 10.8.2 using the conventional update package for other Macs.


    You have a Mid 2012 MacBook Pro, and it needs a special 10.8.2 version. To install it, open  > Software Update and install all the available updates
