I have a brand new Mac Mini. It came (last week) with OSX 10.8.1 installed. Software update is reporting an update for iPhoto to version 9.4.2. When I try to run the update, it fails with a message saying that I need OSX 10.8.2. Then when I try to download the OSX 10.8.2 release, I get a message 'OSX Mountain Lion is not compatible with this computer'.

What is happening?!

The OSX 10.8.2 update for my Mini was reinstated Nov 30 and seems to have worked OK. That allowed the iPhoto upgrade to run as well. – dsteele Nov 30 '12 at 18:08

the update was pulled after problems with the update.
