I am running 10.5.6 and when I run Software Update it says that my system us up to date. Why would it not list 10.5.7? Has anyone else experienced this?

There was a suggestion on the Apple discussion boards to delete ~/Library/Preferences/ and reboot but it did not solve the issue.

I know I could download the combo updated but surely there is some kind of problem if Software Update doesn't list it.

It just seems that software update breaks sometimes rather than a error with your mac personally, it's a OSX bug.
