    Or the library. Still a pain in the butt. I'm just feeling cranky I guess, my back is acting up. Sucks getting old.

    Will be PO'd if I lug my laptop to the library only to have it fail. I know it says optional but I would think an update this size has some important stuff. Wish they would have left out the language stuff and made that part different update(s). I'm sure that would reduce the size quite a bit.

    What did it do?
    It takes a while to download as it pauses at 4% to do background things.
    See my post #4

    There is a pre requisite listed: 2919355

    Also, for some error codes , have to install 2975061 , it seems. Try those nevertheless.

    Had any of the previous update patches ended up failing popeye?

    I think you do regular maintenance & health check of system, so you'll be okay hopefully
