These are the messages I get when attempting the Software Update with automatic download enabled.
The update “Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 4” can’t be installed.
"An error occurred during installation."
Two Mac Pros (MacOSX 10.5.7) gave the same problem.
Clearly, I won't be updating with this new Java update until Apple fixes the problem.
I might attempt a direct download from the downloads pages at a later date.
Hi. Mac Software updater say me : error occured ( in french because i'm a french user)
java is totally broken, i really cant use it ( even by the applet ways). Is there a way to reinstall correct java bundle ? without a total Mac OSX reinstal ?
i have quit all activated broswers.
6 month ago i called Apple France for this problem without success ( applecare )

As I mentioned in my original post, the update went seemlessly. I quit all my browsers (safari and firefox) and ran the update. About 3-4 minutes later I got a message that the update was succesful. However when I relaunched Safari (v4.0) the first thing I noticed was my startpage www.apple.com/startpage couldn't load, it just kept saying "loading." I tried loading CNN then Yahoo, then abcnews.com all with the same results. I frequent macrumors.com and tried loading it with little success. Then, I tried loading the same webpages with Firefox which appears to have the same page load issues. Any ideas?
I had the same problem on two separate Mac Pros configured very differently but both on 10.5.7.
I achieved success by forcing the Software Updater to redownload the Java update.
BTW, Disk Utility lists 64 Permissions errors... each line is of the type
...should be x-x-x but is y-y-y. DU won't fix this.
I have two Mac Pros and a brand new unibody Macbook Pro all showing the same list of 64 permissions errors.
Thnks Pedro, it seems to be installed now for me too.
i just rebooted *without extension*
( big repair on quicktime's components )
but they're always displayed as needed repairs at each reboot.
even thought SU seems to install the downloaded java update, javaws don't works.
i need to confirm though.
Strange behaviour and my first problem with SU
Will pages load if you disable Java?
Safari / Preferences / Security
Uncheck - Enable Java
Let me know.
If it does fix the problem, I'll get on my PowerMac G4 and see if I can remove then completely reinstall the Java update, and send you instructions.
I'm curious as to why the web pages don't load at all, you would think you would get SOMETHING, just not the Java crap. I was also thinking maybe there is a version conflict between the new Java and Adobe flash, but again you would think you would get SOMETHING!
Bear with me..
