I have tried, several times, to update OS 10.5.1 to 10.5.8 using Apple's online software updater. It takes 20 minutes to download the 768 mb package but then

refuses to save with the following message. 2.16 GHz + 2 GB ram.


Mac OS X can't be saved. The digital signature for this package is incorrect. The package may have been tampered with or corrupted since being signed by Apple.


I need to update to 10.5.8 so I can then install 10.6 etc.


I have tried to install 10.6 without updating to 10.8 but it shows the message: Mac OS X can't install on this computer. I assume this is because I have not, and

cannot, updated to 10.5.8.


Any help would be appreciated.


Apple want me to pay $20 to advise them that their software package has an incorrect digital signature, even though it has only just been downloaded from their servers. No email address to advise Apple of problem.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
