I finally upgraded from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion (I didn't trust my older iMac (iMac11,3) to run the newest OS X) but now I can't install an important security update, the Security Update 2015-006 1.0.
I'm totally at a loss. I even booted up into the recovery mode, repaired all disk/permissions (didn't see anything serious anyway) and then re-installed Mountain Lion all over again. I'm still getting an error when I try to install it though.
It downloads just fine, and gets to the end of the install process after rebooting, but just gives an "unexpected error."
How can I fix this?
EDIT: I tried downloading and installing the standalone update, but it didn't work either. Here are (what I understand to be) the output logs from the end of the installation process, when it fails:
