    Unhappy problem installing updates
    I am trying to install all outstanding updates to my mac using software update.
    i am trying to install; iDVD update version 7.0.3, Drigital Camera Raw Compatibility version 2.4, Safari version 3.2.1, and finally most important: Security update 2009-001 PPC. i get a really annoying error messages saying that i have not got permision to write to the folders i need to. This does not make sense as i have full administrative rights. the error messages i get are as follows:
    Code:
    Make sure you have permission to write to /Library/Caches/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate/content/downloads/51/54/zz061-5886/qpRdQ9zf9pzrLMmVcYRx3NhqQ9x9cmCSYc, then try again.
    
    Make sure you have permission to write to /Library/Caches/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate/content/downloads/39/55/061-5781/MXWnCKmmLYSNCgnShfyQF3Z92SRLYcNw9t, then try again.

    run disk utility and run a permissions repair before installing the updates

    It is always a good idea to run a permissions repair from time to time

    edit: didn't read the last bit of your post, try downloading mainmenu, clearing the caches, then another permissions repair and see if that helps
