Trying to install OS Yosemite and get this:

Can't connect to the Apple Software Update server.

Already tried to delete ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist - did not help. What shall I do?

    You'll just have to wait a few more hours :-) – nohillside Oct 16 '14 at 19:52
  • The same was discussed here: discussions.apple.com/thread/6579420?start=0&tstart=0 Any variants? – k1r8r0wn Oct 16 '14 at 19:57
  • It's hard to say right now, with thousands of people hammering Apple servers trying to download Yosemite. So it might be just an overloaded server farm or it may be something else. Might be worth to wait a few days (or follow the ideas from the forum). – nohillside Oct 16 '14 at 20:02
  • I saw this error two days ago, so I little worry about safety... – k1r8r0wn Oct 16 '14 at 20:06
  • Then it's probably not related to Yosemite, but nevertheless debugging might be difficult right now. – nohillside Oct 16 '14 at 20:10
