10.5.2 The Installer could not install some files in "/"

November 30Hits:0
Advertisement
I have tried to upgrade my Inter Mac Mini Core Duo 1.66 to 10.5.2.
I ran the install through software update and proceeded through the 2 restarts. Once my mini restarted I checked "about my mac" to find that it still said the system was 10.5.1
I ran software update again to find that on trying to install i now get the message
Install Failed - The installer could not install some files in "/" please contact the software manufacturer for assistance.
I then tried the same with the combo updater and got the same message
I have tried to verfiy my disk or repaire permissions using disk utility for it to completely hang with the spinning beach ball and causes finder to crash.
I have also booted up with the leopard disk in and tried disk utility which says there are no problem with the disk but disk utility in leopard still hangs
Can anyone help??
Is anyone getting the same problem?
Thanks

I'm having the same problem installing the Leopard Graphics Update on my Dual 2.5 G5. Installing 10.5.2 went fine, but afterwards the graphics update would fail to install, with the same error message you got. I tried both Software Update and downloading the standalone installer.
But wait, there's more! I also can no longer repair permissions using Disk Utility. I get the following message: "Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit." Booting from my Leopard install CD does allow me to fix permissions.
Lastly, my second internal hard drive is now also behaving oddly, Any time I try to drag a file to the Trash, I get a dialog box telling me: "The item "(file name)" will be deleted immediately. Are you sure you want to continue?"
I've run DiskWarrior from the CD and tried fsck in Single User mode (no errors found). Nothing seems to help
I had no problem updating to 10.5.2 on my MacBook, but the update to my desktop has been a real booger. Anyone who can offer any input, I'd sure appreciate it.
