I am attempting to download available software updates.  When attempting the update for "Java for Mac OSX 10.5" I get the following message:

The digital signatur for this package is incorrect.  The package may have been tampered with or corrupted since being signed by "Apple."

 

How can I accomplish the update?


iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    There is rarely ever a need to download software updates. All the updates you need are available from the Software Update... in the Apple menu or System Preferences.

    Just spotted the discrepancy between what you asked and what your profile shows, so you will need to double check to see what OS your are using as BDAqua asked, but if it's 10.7.5 (Lion) then you are either looking for a Java 6 update from Apple (which has been disabled in your browser, has not and probably never will been updated) or Java 7 from Oracle.  What is it you are trying to do?

    My OS is 10.5.8

    This update IS one available from the Software Update....in the Apple menu

     

    I ran into this same problem/message with two or three of the other software updates available.

     

    Here is a screenshot of the error message I receive.

     

    Thanks

    Is your iMac PPC or Intel? That might make a difference.

     

    For some reason your screenshot wasn't there when I first looked, but now that it is I know you need Update 10 which can be found here.

     

    One way to find out what version you have is to open Java Preferences (found in /Applications/Utilities/).

     

    If it says J2SE 5.0 1.5.0_30, and Java SE 6 1.6.0_26 for 64-bit capable Intel-based Macs then you have all the updates available.

    Looks like I'm getting closer to the answer.  My iMac is Intel.  From the attached of Java Preferances, can you tell which I should choose?Picture 3.png

    What you have checked should work automatically for the required version, except the 32 bit 5.0 since Lion/10.7 is 64 bit mode.

    As I pointed out above, those are all very old and more unsafe. 

     

    What happened when you downloaded and tried to install the Update 10 that I gave you the link to?  I tried it with my setup and it ran fine, but my iMac is PPC, which shouldn't make a difference, but it might.

    Dear MadMacs) and BDAqua

     

    thanks for your attempts to help me.  I simply wanted to download the Software Updates listed as available when I did the "Check for Software Updates" under the Apple menu. 

     

    I didn't anticipate them not working.

     

    So, I've given up and am going to take my iMac to a technician for a cleanup and update.

     

    Thanks again for your time.
