Hi all,

I just got my Mac Mini today and so far I am pretty impressed (still have to get used to MacOS X and the keyboard, and everything Smile.

I tried to update Tiger using the Software Updates and, on 3 downloads (namely the 10.4.2 update, the Pages update and the iPhoto update) it gives me an error regarind the digital signature of these packages (that it is incorrect).

First I hought it might be a problem with the download and I tried again, but the same thing happened.

So what exactly might be the problem here and what is the soulution? Should I download the updates manually?

And another thing, when the update wizard is looking for updates, it goes well until about 80% of the search, then it stalls for quite a while. The network shows no activity, but if I let it for about 10-15 minutes, then it shows me the updates. What might be the problem here (the internet connection is fine, I can browse web pages and download other programs from the net).

Thanks in advance!

I would download the Tiger update manually and then re-try the other updates.

Well, I did as you suggested and I've downloaded the 10.4.2 update manually. Then it failed at the checksum verification but I've just skipped the verification and it got installed.

Now I am downloading the other updates. So let's see if they get installed this time.

In this months issue of Mac World it said that upgrade problems could be the result of incompatible third party RAM, did you upgrade your RAM?

No, I didn't upgrade the RAM. Anyway, I've had to re-download and re-install the 10.4.2 because after skipping the checksum validation, thus installing a broken update, several applications started to crash.

But now after re-installing a correct downloaded 10.4.2 update, all the other updates installed just fine and everything is ok.
