I am running version OS X 10.8.2. In the App Store it shows an update for OS X 10.8.3. I tried to update, but it’s showing the following error: An error occurred while downloading the updates. (102).

Any help regarding this issue will be appreciated...

This happened to me last night. Close the App Store and Re-Open. Hit Update again next to the 10.8.3 description and it should start up again. This happens when your download connection drops out. The App Store application is actually just a web browsing frame which caches cookies with a delay for queries so it sometimes takes a minute to "refresh" itself to try again.

  • yesterday itself i am trying like what you have mentioned... but the same error... even i tried after restarting the machine also the same result...

  • try hitting update a few times... I think i pressed it 5-10 times before it fixed itself. You can also try logging out and back in to the app store Mar 20, 2013 at 4:42

You can update manually using the 10.8.3 delta update from Apple.

  • If for some reason the delta update fails, try the combo update or post an update to the question with the error message from the installer log.
