Are some / all of Apple's software update servers down.
I am on a Mac Pro with 10.7.5. everything is working as usual, including full access to the Internet.
But, when I try to run Software Update. It reports back that the file on the update server cannot be found.
"Software Update can't check for updates because of a network problem."
"The file “index-lion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog” couldn’t be found on the server “swscan.apple.com”."
When I try to ping the update server by name, the ping times out.
" ping swscan.apple.com
PING p01-swscan.apple.com.akadns.net (188.8.131.52): 56 data bytes
Request timeout for icmp_seq 0
Request timeout for icmp_seq 1
Request timeout for icmp_seq 2
Request timeout for icmp_seq 3"
The only thing that has changed is that I manually ran Pacifist and installed the Pro Codecs because the software was not installing as expected.
Anyone have a thought?
