Security Update 2006-002 won't install

I've tried about 10 times, each time it gets to the point of writing but stops at 66% completion. Then tells me the software failed to install. Anyone else having trouble? This has happened to me on the last few updates. Could it be because I'm behind? I don't think it is because this software update says in incorporates the last few upgrades.

Hi Jonathan:
What's your hard drive capacity like? You should try to maintain at least 1-2 GB free.
Also, how long have you had 512MB RAM? Have you recently upgraded? Poor-quality RAM could affect software updates. If this applies, remove any recently installed RAM and try the update. If successful, replace the RAM (though I'd get the RAM replaced).

  • Security Update 2012-002 Won't Install

    I have been attempting for some time now to install the latest Security Update 2012-002 on my Macbook Pro running OSX v.10.6.8.
    Upon restart as the computer is about to fully boot up it simply shuts off. I have run Apple Disk Utility as well as MacTuneUp several times.
    The machine seems to be in fine working condition and accepts all other software updates except this one.
    Any suggestions or fixes out there?

  • Security update 2014-002 won't install, stuck on gray Software update screen

    My mac mini has been trying to install this security update the past week.  It asks for me to restart, when I do it gets stuck on a Software Updater page or gray screen.  The only way I can proceed is the shut the computer down by manually holding down the power button.  When I restart it shows the update not applied.
    I've tried downloading the update directly and applying and no difference.  Any ideas?

    The worst of these background programs, MacKeeper requires you remove it with third party instructions:
    You should not use cache cleaners on any system other than a backed up system.
    You should not multitask while attempting to back your data.
    Open the Activity Viewer to determine what other processes may be running and determine if one of those is one you recognize that is third party.
    Antivirus and firewall software are not essential, unless you practice unsafe computing in the first place.  In those instances ClamAV and Sophos are probably the best bets about being the least intrusive.

  • Any Problems With Security Update 2006-002

    Hi a few weeks ago I updated my PowerBook G4 running Mac OS 10.3.9 to Apple Security Update 2006-001 and instantly my Dock Meny dissappeared after installation and Safari broke. My Dock Menu returned after installation but Safari remained broken.
    In the end I simply reinstalled Mac OS X Panther from scratch, recreated my user account and copied my data (I had it saved) back to my Mac.
    I don't want to run the risk of something like this happening again. I do not have Apple Security Update 2006-001 installed at this time but I do have Apple Security Updates from 2005 installed and 10.3.9 on my system.
    If I install Apple Security Update 2006-002 on my Mac (will be updating from 2005 security updates) - not updating 2006-001 to 2006-002 but installing first 2006 Security Update for the first time could I run into any problems?
    Want to hear from other users who have installed this update - have updated from 2006-001 and preferrably anyone who is installing this update directly (not over 2006-001) before updating myself.

    Ive got some serious problems with 2006-001 (and they wernt cured by installing 2006-002).
    Photoshop and flash mx stopped working and I am unable to reinstall either!
    Ive deleted all prefs, caches, everything associated with these apps.
    Ive tried installing different versions of both apps - but to no avail.
    Ive repaired disk permissions (even in single user mode) - and while that did straighten out a few incorrect permissions and uid's it did'nt fix my problems.
    Totally at the end of my tether now, and getting impatient with Apple - this is my livelyhood and I cant afford to have downtime!
    The "broken webkit" fiasco at the back end of last year was bad enough, but this just takes the p*!
    Not happy - but hopeful that someone has a fix (preferably one that doesn't involve archive and restore)....

  • Problems with Security Update 2006-002

    Hi there,
    I have problems with latest security update. I do not know what went wrong, but after installing "Security Update 2006-002 (PowerPC)" (1.0) on 2006-03-14 15:52:40 +0100: with Software Update from Tiger, my desktop (and probably not only desktop) is damaged.
    The most visible thing is that all .html and .htm documents on my desktop does not have Safari icon anymore, they have some 'blank' icon and doubleclick on them DOES NOT start-up Safari, why?
    See here on the screenshot:
    note blank "apple - start.webarchive" also the Safari itself have somehow damaged icon, to same blank thing with triangle, possibly some 'generic app' or '' icon. It sits in the dock on 5th from left...(dont worry about real safari icon, that's newly added by me)
    Also, on, second screenshot, you see that safari itself have some strange icon.
    I am getting crazy, since I do not know what else is broken by last update.
    I have tryed to repair permissions at least 3x, and also run update_prebindings and reboot, delete all system and user caches, and reboot.
    Whole issue is system-wide, not only for one user.
    iBook G4   Mac OS X (10.4.5)   1.33 GHz, 512 MB, 12-inch

    The first thing you can try, if this is limited only to Safari icons, is to select on such icon, then press COMMAND-I to open the Get Info window. In the Open With section select Safari from the dropdown menu as the default app. Then click on the Change All button.
    If this doesn't resolve the problem or if the problem extends to other appicons as well, then you may have some disk corruption resulting from not repairing the hard drive and permissions before doing the update. I suggest you do that:
    Boot from your Tiger DVD. After the installer loads select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. After DU loads select your OS X volume from the list on the left, click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer. Now shutdown the computer for a couple of minutes and then restart normally.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior (3.0.3 for Tiger) and/or TechTool Pro (4.1.1 for Tiger) to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.

  • Problem with Security Update 2006-002

    I have downloaded and installed the latest security update (2006-002) on my iBook running 10.3.9. As a result apparently all my Keychain related functionality is gone: Keychain Access blocks forever trying to display the password of an entry, and, more annoying, all possibility of connecting to my WiFi network (WEP key) is also gone.
    I recreated a default Keychain, and tried to log on to the wifi network: the password dialog blocks forever here too.
    I tried to track down what are the components changed by 2006-002, and the list is really long (I'm lost in there). The only indice I have about the problem is my Library/<myusername>/console.log where I have entries of the type:
    Keychain Agent [318] NSKeychain is now obsolete!
    Keychain Agent [318] NSKeychainItem is now obsolete!
    Keychain Agent [318] NSKeychainSearch is now obsolete!
    I suspect some libraries have been changed by the update but my keychain software hasn't.
    Does anybody knows of a workaround? I'll backup and reformat/reinstall 10.3 tomorrow (after buying a pack of CDRs) but I'm rather annoyed to have to spend one or two days downloading and reinstalling all the software I need.

    A lot of individuals (myself included) believe that repairing permissions before and after an update will keep problems from ocurring.
    Glad it worked for you!

  • Address Book & Mail crash after Security Update 2006 002 1.1

    I recently installed Security Update 2006 002 v1.1 on my iBook G4 and since then Address Book has crashed on launch (also when launching from the Dashboard and from within Mail), and Mail now crashes when pasting text into a new message. I tried repairing permissions with Disk Utility and checking the locations of the apps. So far, nothing's helped.
    I've read similar problems on the discussions but haven't found any solutions. If I've missed something, please pass me a link - if not, any ideas?
    thank you

    The best way to preserve your data, preferences and settings it to do an Archive and Install. When you use that method the installer places your User Folder with the data etc. in a Previous Systems Folder and you retrieve them following the installation. Of course, before any major operation like that it is wise to backup those things, anyway, just in case something goes wrong.
    Here are some suggestions on installation:
    Tiger: Archive and Install (with a Clean Install Option)
    If you have the Full Retail Version of Tiger (computer specific disks for your computer) here is what you do.
    1. Warning: Although we will use Archive and Install there is always a risk something can go wrong. As a precaution back up your User Folder and any third party applications you can't afford to lose.
    2. Check to see if you have the latest Firmware Update. Note: You must be in OS 9 to update firmware
    3. Boot from the install disk holding down the C key.
    4. Once booted go to the Utilities Menu and open Disk Utility.
    To do a clean install see Notes below
    5. Run Repair Disk. If there are problems, run it until no problems are reported. If it reports that it can't repair the problems you might need TechTool Pro or Disk Warrior.
    6. While still in Disk Utility run Repair Permissions.
    7. Quit Disk Utility and open the Installer.
    8. Choose the option to Archive and Install. This saves your data in a Previous Systems folder, which you can retrieve after installation.
    9. You might want to Customize and deselect Foreign Language Translations and Additional Printer Drivers to save Hard Drive space.
    10. Proceed with installation.
    11. After installation is complete computer will restart. Follow prompts and set up computer.
    12. Open Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility) and Repair Permissions.
    13. Go online and download updates, or go to Software Update under the Apple Menu and update your OS.
    14. Transfer your User Folder from Previous Systems folder.
    NOTE (below):
    To do a clean install:
    Follow steps 1 through 4 above.
    a. In Disk Utility select your HD in left panel and Erase in main panel.
    b. Be sure Volume Format is Mac OS Extended and the checkbox Mac OS 9 Drivers Installed is checked.
    c. Select Options at bottom left in Erase panel. WARNING! This procedure will erase the contents of your entire HDD. Be sure you back up anything you cannot afford to lose!
    Select option to zero all data. Click OK. Click Erase.
    This process will take a while, so this is a good time to take a long walk or call your mother
    d. After HDD is erased resume at No. 7 above.
    Post back with any questions or comments.
    Good luck.

  • Can't mount movie DVDs after Security Update 2006-002

    I installed Security Update 2006-002 today after all the preparation recommended by MacFixit. Everything came up fine, EXCEPT:
    Movie DVDs (e.g., as rented from Blockbuster) no longer mount.
    Yesterday, there was no problem.
    Dual G5 2.5 GHz   Mac OS X (10.4.5)  

    The following link describes MacFixit's recommendation for installation of 10.4.6, but it is basically the same recommendation as they have given for quite a while for any significant system update, including security updates:
    Scroll down until you see "Update process recommendation".
    In my case, I had followed the "more cautious route" of this procedure but still had a problem, and then the problem went away when I did a (presumably extra) pre-binding.
    For system-wide updates (that is, 10.4.x -> 10.4.(x+1)) I've always used combo updaters rather than the supposedly specific-and-therefore-smaller updaters when updating the system. For the security update in question here, I downloaded the updater from the Apple site rather than use Software Update.
    Hope this helps.

  • After Security update 2006-002, RAM is halved

    Right after applying the Security Update 2006-002, I experienced a freeze upon wake-up from sleep. And a general application slowdown.
    A fleeting look past the About this Mac window surprisingly revealed that the system now identifies the two additional (trusty for 8 months or so) OWC 1GB RAM modules as 512kb only. Startup memory test is reported as failed - But the modules are still listed as OK.)
    I tried putting the modules in another bank. This works, after restart memory is identified correctly and system breezes. Unfortunately, another restart brings things back to the original, 1.5GB state.
    Resetting nvram (reset-nvram, set-defaults, reset-all) in OF also mostly has the same effect: First restart restores things back to normal, second restart brings the problem back.
    Having read about the recent PB problems where a system update aparently disabled one memory slot, something tells me it's not the RAM modules themselves. (Yes, they check out fine in memory tests.)
    Any ideas?

    Problem disappeared after I caved in and bought new RAM (Kingston Value Ram) as recomended by / from a local dealer. I am inclined to think this in fact was a defect in the RAM modules themselves, OWC has issued a RMA on them and I'm sending them back. Thanks!

  • Security Update 2007-002 Won't Stay Installed

    Hello All-
    I've been trying to download/install Security Update 2007-002 without success. I have tried about 4 different times to no avail. Every time I do download the update, install it and then restart my computer, it's still shows up in my Software Updates that need to be downloaded. Any ideas as to what's going on? TIA!!

    Many thanks, Bill!
    Your hint did work for me! I tryed before to follow the tip at VersionTracker (use Pacifist to extract iChat from the 10.4.8-Combo-updater to replace the language-stripped iChat I had), but that failed. The resulting version of iChat after running 2007-002 reported to be 3.1.7, but crashed at start. Probably because the iChat in the 10.4.8-Combo-updater is Version 3.1.5, and this version also crashes without the update.
    In my case, iChat 3.1.6 had only the German and English language files. I use Macaroni to strip unused languages.
    The question that remains is: Can I strip the languages from iChat 3.1.7, or will that result in a crash?

  • I need help with the Security Update 2006-002!

    Security update has really screwed up the two systems I've installed it on:
    1) My G4 PowerBook refused to reboot after the update, getting only as far as the initialApple screen. Rebooting with a 10.4 install disk and using Disk Utilities to try to repair the disk either results in an "Unable to unmount disk" error, or if Repair does proceed, it is unable to repair the disk. I get a "Invalid node structure" error message, then a "Rebuilding B-Tree" message, then a "The Voluma Macintosh HD could not be repaird" message, and Repair quits with a "Error: the underlying task reported failure on exit" message.
    2) On my Dual 2 GHz G5 desktop, Safari appears to be unable to load more than six URL:s in 6 tabs; I read about 20 webcomics all organized in a bookmarks folder, and my usual practice is to select "Open in tabs" to open them all at once. Heretofore Safari has opened all the tabs and all the URLs without a hitch. After the update it will open all the ttabs but only about the first six sites load - all the rest just sit there spinning their wheels.
    Also it has hosed iChat on my Dsktop. iChat will open, but will not send or receive chats, and will not open the buddy window.
    Also Also, the system frequently hangs, seizing up anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes, then resuming normally. Safari seems to be the culprit, but I can't really tell.
    I need an update to recover from the effects of the last update.

    I'm not very knowledgeable on macs yet being a new user (switcher) However, there appear to have been too many problems for too many people and too many systems associated with this update for it to be co-incidental. Take a look through the topics since the update appeared. My computer is brand new. The update did something that screwed something in the startup file (or whatever) The nice man in India helped me get the computer going by removing all sorts of wonderous things, this after his colleague in Cork had sent me all sorts of stuff to my work address to try out when I got home, like pram and nvram (which only made things worse) and other things. Now my computers fixed. Except that there's now no printer, it won't find the drivers off the install discs and any driver I load from canon isn't recognised or a script isn't recognised. I bought this thing to get away from problems like this on PCs!!!!

  • Security Update 2006-002 (10.3.9) has disabled my AirPort

    After installing 2006-002 via Software Update on my 10.3.9 iBook, I can no longer see (via the Admin Utility) or connect to my Airport Extreme base station. The base station is up and running, as the G4 connected directly to it can get out to the Internet just fine. I've tried:
    * restarting the base station (via power cycle) and the iBook
    * repairing permissions
    * reinstalling the update from the standalone package
    all to no avail. Otherwise the machine seems to be running fine.

    In the "never fails" category . . . went back onto the machine and signed on under a different account. Immediately got the the familiar Keychain dialog asking for permission for AirPort, responded yes, and the base station was suddenly visible to this account. Logged off, back in under the original account, got the same Keychain request (which had NEVER appeared before in 5 or 6 different logins) and was off and running again.

    The Security Update 2010-005 message is common for users who try to install FaceTime on a Leopard (10.5.x) Mac. The Mac FaceTime beta will not run in Leopard.
    Your posted system info shows that you use Mac OS X (10.6.5), but perhaps you are trying to install FaceTime on a Mac that does not meet FaceTime system requirements?
    The FaceTime product page shows system requirements:
      "*Requires Mac OS X v10.6.4 Snow Leopard or later.*"
    I always suggest using the latest Snow Leopard version.
    If your posted Mac OS X (10.6.5) is correct, use the following method to apply the 10.6.5 Combo before attempting another FaceTime reinstall:
      • Backup your Mac and turn off Time Machine
      • Disconnect peripherals and restart Mac
      • Use Disk Utility to repair permissions
      • Download and install
      • Repair permissions again immediately following the restart that finishes the update.
      • Download and install a fresh copy of FaceTime
     (• Turn Time Machine on again when you are satisfied that everything works.)
