Default Can't install update.zip

Hello!

Bought a used droid 6 months ago. Every week or so I get an icon in the toolbar telling me that there is a system update available. When I click to install, it aborts. The messages that I get are as follows:

-- Install from sdcard...
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
E:failed to open /sdcard/update.zip (No such file or directory)
E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted.

I don't know how to check to see if the file is actually there. If it is not, why do I keep seeing the icon that says it has been downloaded and is available for installation?

Can anybody help?

Is the DROID that you bought rooted?

I don't know if it is rooted or not. How do I tell?

open terminal (if you don't have a terminal emulator, get one that is free from the market) and the type
Code:
su
and hit enter.

If you get a popup asking you to allow terminal to have root privileges, then you're rooted. Or, if nothing happens and the prompt changes from
Code:
$
to
Code:
#
you're rooted.

If you get an error message saying su not found, or something like that, then you're probably not rooted (that can also happen if root is broken, so that's why I said probably).

It changed to #, so I assume that it is rooted.

yup - which means that the ROM on there is probably blocking the update.zip, since most ROMs are set to do this. Which means...

You can put a custom ROM that is newer that will completley block the update notification

Enjoy!

when I go back to the second menu to apply sdcard:update.zip it says "E: Can't open /sdcard/update.zip , if I return to the previous menu from Mount USB "USB Mass Storage Device , Leaving this Menu will unmount your SD Card from your PC" what should I do so I can not unmount my SD Card when I return to the menu to apply "update.zip" ?
