It sounds like you have installed a previous version, so you have a 
local copy of the i-Package; but your local copy is read-only (because 
it has been locked, or because it's in a directory where you don't 
currently have write permission, or something?).

I just checked that the Update action works for me, on my PowerBook at 
home. So I think the package on the net is OK and the message relates 
to something about your local machine.
