I just unboxed and set up my new iMac 27".  Used Time Machine to restore my backup from my old iMac and everything seemed to go well.  Now, however, when I try to use Software Update, I get the 'spinning dial' and a message that says it is unable to connect, that I should check my internet connection.  My web browser and e-mail apps work fine, and I am connected to the Internet through my WiFi router.  Why would Software Update not work?  I also saw (maybe related) that I am not able to sign into the Messages app -- when I provide my AppleID and password, it waits for a long time and then says 'unable to connect, check your network connection'.  Has a system setting not been made properly?



iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 27"
