Thank you for helping - but when downlaoded, the updater will not install as the 'system requirements do not met' for the update. I assume this is because it has been updated to 10.6.6 already?
I have even tried to reinstall an earlier OSX from the back up disk, so that i can reinstall the 10.6.6 update and MacApp store - and even this doesn't allow me to revert to an older OS!
Try repairing permissions.
Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done.
If you see any warnings re: SUID messages, they can be safely ignored, information here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1448?viewlocale=en_US
Restart your Mac. Try installing the v10.6.6 combo update now.
Thank you so much for your effort in trying to sort my wee problem...
I did exactly as you said, and then tried the Updater.
The problem remains - it still will not allow me to update the software, as the OS is running the most up to date iteration (10.6.6).
Is there anywhere that i can download the MacApp store by itself?
So, from your profile, I see you have a Mac Mini Server? Are you running the Server OS? If so, you need the server combo update:
And, running a combo update over the existing OS hasn't been a problem - although I'm not knowledgeable about anything Server related.
If you're not running the Server, disregard my suggestion...
