I tried to update Mac OS X using Software Update. But when I tap on software updates, it's checking software updates and listing the available updates.

I didn't see Mac OS X update available in the list. I am not able to do this. Can you guys please help ?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What is your current OS X version ??

The latest OS X is 10.6.7 - and if you can't get it through "Software Update", then you can download the whole OS X v10.6.7 Update Combo here:

You may already be on the latest version (check with the menu item > About This Mac).
If not, you may have accidentally “Ignored” the update (⌫ in Software Update or the menu item Update > Ignore Update…).

You might try the Software Update menu item Software Update > Reset Ignored Updates (it is only enabled if you have Ignored an update in the past).
