Software update taking ages


Active Member
Hi have a new iMac and I'm trying to restart it but it's been over 30mins now and it looks to have frozen. Its tring to install 3 items and it seems to have froze on "running package scripts" . Any ideas guys? Tried AppleCare but they are not available until tomorrow.

Just switch it off, switch it back on. Then run 'disk utility' and run a verify/repairs permissions on the hard drive. The packaging system will sort itself out.
