I downloaded the latest iTunes update from software update and it downloaded fine. When I opened iTunes, it started updating library and the progress bar got half-way done and then stopped. I waited for about 20min, but it was still at the same position.


Here are the trouble shooting steps I took:


I forced quit iTunes. I removed the iTunes Library.itl file. I relaunched iTunes and iTunes 10.5.2 opened, but with no play lists etc. I deleted the newly created .itl file and put the old one back. I restored this file from a Time Machine back up from about 24hours previously. I opened iTunes again, and the same thing happened.


I downloaded the stand alone update and redid the same steps as before, but the update of the library just stalls. I even tried to use the .itl file located in the previous library folder, but the update of the library stalled just like before.


Time Machine will not let me restore a previous version of iTunes, nor will the finder let me delete iTunes as "Mac Os requires iTunes" or something of the sort.


I have the same problem on my MBP as well as my Mac Mini server. Althougth the content is not the same on both computers, the mac mini library started out as a copy of the one on my MBP. Both itunes libraries were working last night before the update.


Has anyone had this problem? iTunes was working fine before the update and I have not subscribed to iTunes Match.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
