    It will not update


    The update does not appear in Software Update, or it fails to install?


    Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 8 is not what you want if you are running Lion as shown in your system information.


    Try the direct link? http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1515

    Hey guys just wondering if you would be able to help me.  I have had this issue for the last week and cant seem to find anything to sort it out.


    I am unable to download Java for OS X 2012-003 version 1.0 66.8MB


    At the end of the installation process (when is states that it is moving items into place) and error message appears.  It says


    " The update Java for OS X 2012-003 cant be installed.  An unexpected error occured"


    The same message appeared when trying to download Java for OS X 2012-002.  I have not had any trouble dowloading other sofware updates (I tunes, i photo etc)


    I have tried downloading the updates from the Apple webiste but i get an error stating that an unexpected error occured and they ask if i would like to send apple a report.  To which i have said yes.


    Any suggestions on how to rectafy this problem as i am aware that this update is to help protect against malware etc.


    Thanks heaps in advance

    My hard drive was fried and i had to take it to a mac dealership.  They replaced my HD and everything is back up and running and was able to download all updates.  Thanks for your help.
