    There are no further updates for 10.4.11.

     

    A PPC G5 can upgrade to leopard 10.5.8 - if you can find a black retail install disk on eBay or Amazon - think $200.

     

    No later versions of OS X can run on a PPC Mac.

    With a G series Mac gone are the days when you could simply run Software Update and everything would be nicely updated without a single brain cell having been disturbed.  However, people do still use G series computers these days and you can keep up with things about 90% if you install the right software, are willing to use workarounds, and be patient.  Apple stopped bringing out old Mac updates for Safari years ago but you can, for example, run TenFourFox browser which is fairly up to date with the equivalent Firefox.

    Classic Mac OS

    10.5 also removes Classic compatibility.  So keeping around a clone copy of 10.4 may be necessary if you have a really old piece of software.
