    Software update fails in Macbook Air

    I just get the notification of updating my software which are present in Macbook Air and once I select the update and go for it restarts after the update getting installed and once it boots back up again it just says corrupt files and the update just drops without working. What might be the issue behind this? I tried several times but still having the same issue. Kindly help.

    =================================

    Hi,

    I will suggest you to change the settings,and check the option of "Automatic Updates".
    By doing so,the software will update automatically and there is no need for you to update it explicitly.

    But if still the same problem persists,then this means that there is some problem in the software itself.
    Hence you need to reinstall the software.

    Bye!

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.................................

    1.Firstly check your internet connection is alright or not.

    2.If that is not your problem then this can be the problem of the update.

    3.May be the update provider has the corrupted files in it.

    4.So you try to perform and other update in your Mac.

    5.If still you have the problem then it is your Mac problem so open Time Machine and perform Restore to fix this problem.

    All the best............................
