I am trying to update AntiVirus for Macintosh, and LiveUpdate 5.1.1 gives me the following error.
LiveUpdate is automatically updating your Symantec products. Wait until this process completes before using LiveUpdate again.
I've restarted the machine, and reinstalled LiveUpdate 5.1.1, but to no avail.
The console has this line repeated several times:

Solved! Go to Solution.

That's very strange. Pleas open the Terminal application, and run the command:
ls -ail /usr/bin/grep
and paste the results here. This should get things started.

Here is the result:
Snowy-MacBook:/../~ $ ls -ail /usr/bin/grep
dyld: shared cached file was build against a different libSystem.dylib, ignoring cache

I got here by doing a Carbon Copy Clone from an external disk to my internal disk after I had set up everything. I compared my /usr/bin directories between the external and internal disks, and all entries with a links value greater than 1 have funny values (beginning with @) and usually have odd owners and/or groups on the internal disk, but not the external. Also, the size shows as 0B.
I saw this also in the /usr/sbin directory.
I'm wondering if Carbon Copy Clone did something wrong. However, on another copy of the system made by Carbon Copy Clone, the /usr/bin directory seems to be correct.

I think I may have discovered my problem. Carbon Copy Cloner just downloaded an update which, among other fixes, changes something about how references are handled in 10.6. This appears to be exactly my problem.
The new version of Carbon Copy Cloner is 3.3.
The specific mention is:
• CCC now manually updates the dynamic link library cache after cloning an OS because the OS no longer does this automatically.
(The other copy I made with Carbon Copy Cloner, which was okay, was a block-level copy, not a file-level copy, so I guess the dynamic links were preserved.)
I will now re clone my Snow Leopard system with the updated version, and see how it goes.
