Maybe start here
[Troubleshooting Automatic Software Update in Mac OS X|http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=9505211&tstart=0].
Otherwise, try deleting this file. com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist located at /Users/YourName/Library/Preferences. Drag that .plist file from the Preferences folder to the Trash, empty the Trash and restart your Mac.
Hope this helps.
This did not solve the problem. I repaired disk permissions and deleted all the SoftwareUpdate ".plist" files found in the link. I restarted the Mac Mini. When I tried to run the Software Update for everything it still died. I then ran each update by itself and it worked fine so my system is up to date. However, I suspect the problem will reappear the next time Apple releases many updates together.
I guess I need to figure out the best way to contact Apple directly. And thanks for the info you provided.
