I have a small amount of updates to install (Jave for Mac OSX 10.6 Update 16, MacBook SMC Firmware Update, Secutity Update 2013-003, Apple Software Installer Update, Safari).  However, when the computer restarts, it goes to the 'space screen,' and no progress bar starts to indicate that any software is installing.  Furthermore, I do not hear any hard drive sounds that would indicate any installing activity.  I can force shutdown and restart, and the computer works fine, but no updates are done.  Also, I tried installing only the first three items, and the last two items separately to see if one of them were hanging up the install, but neither worked.  Any ideas?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
