Trying to upgrade from 10.3 to 10.3.4 on my G4 Powermac - I get the message..."You cannot install this software on this volume.  This volume does not meet the requirements for this update".  There is no anti-virus software to interfere with the update.. This must be a known problem?
Tried downloading several times - takes about 5 hours each time..

Help please!

Have you run any maintenance software on the machine? Norton Disk Doctor? DiskWarrior? Cocktail? Cocktail would be my first choice. Are you doing the update through your Software Update control panel? If not, do it from there.

It sounds like you are trying to install an incremental update (ie 10.3.3 -> 10.3.4)
rather than a combo-update (10.3.x -> 10.3.4)  It there any particular reason you
are upgrading to 10.3.4 rather than 10.3.5?
