I updated my iPad (3) to ios6 when it came out. Afterwards, I occasionally checked for any additional update and simply got the normal message that my OS was up-to-date.
Today, when I check for Softare Updates, I get the error, "Unable to Check for Update - an error occurred while checking for a software update."
Is this an Apple server issue?
I rebooted my iPad and still get the same error.
Last night it was working normally.
it is now working normally.
As I susected, it was a server or network issue, and very temporary.
I once again get the message that my softare is up-to-date.
