Hello All

Today I was prompted to install 4 upgrades which I accepted.

When the install progress bar appeared it showed a small amount of progress and then sat for ages doing nothing until I switched the machine off.

When I restarted I discovered that the updates were:-

MacBook EFI Firmware Update 1.3
Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update 2.4
Safari 3.2.1
Mac OS X Update 10.5.6

so I was probably lucky that I still have a working machine!

As far as I remember there was no warning that the updates included a firmware update.

I deselected the firmware update and tried again with the same results.

Is anyone else having problems with these updates?

I'm new to Apple Mac having only bought this one in December. I see from the update log that there have been several successful updates so far.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I had to install the combo also. I have been told by numerous people that is the best bet for a 'no problem' install.

I had no problem with any of those updates.

Maybe try installing each one separately - also the 10.5.6 update is a big update (I think mine was 300MB) and will take some time to install (I can't remember how long it took for me before you ask!)

If you're having trouble installing the 10.5.6 update via Software Update, try installing the combo update from here.

Note that this update will take a bit longer to install because it includes data for 10.5.1 - 10.5.6
