I've noticed many applications on my Mac (OS X 10.8.2) fail to update. If I command them to do a manual update, the update downloads, unpacks, and then when I click INSTALL AND RESTART the updater ends with an error. As far as I have determined so far, it is only applications which use the Sparkle updater system.
The error simply says:
30/01/13 10:28:52.411 AM Choosy: Sparkle Error: An error occurred in retrieving update information. Please try again later.
I took that from the console.
I am wondering what might cause this. Could it be a permissions issue? I have done a permissions repair.
Can anyone suggest how I might resolve this? Or should I take this up with the folks who make Sparkle?
