Hi there,
I wondered, why any system update wont install on my MacBook Pro with Leopard 10.5.5. So I tried to repair disk permissions which causes an error that calls something like "there is an error in quitting the process" (sorry ... have only the german version, so this is nearly what it says).
Repairing the permissions from a Leopard DVD ends up the same way.
Repairing the harddisk works fine.
Updating the 10.5.5 Combo Update quits with an error that says "The Installation package couldn't install some of the files in "/". Contact the Manufacturer."

Any ideas what this could be ? Thought it startet a couple of days ago with the installation of a new Java Version, but I'm not sure if this causes any problems.

Thanks for any suggestions

G5 Dual, Mac OS X (10.5.5), MacBook Pro 15"Core Duo 2.4 Ghz

    ok,
    I've found this in the logfiles:

    Started verify/repair permissions on disk disk0s2 Macintosh HD
    Error -9972: The underlying task reported failure on exit

    Finished verify/repair permissions on disk disk0s2 Macintosh HD
    Error detected while verifying/repairing permissions on disk0s2 Macintosh HD: The underlying task reported failure on exit (-9972)

    Repairing the keychains worked fine but didn't solve the problem at all.
