    I’m trying to build a 10.8.2 system using version r459. When I run ./instadmg/Addons/InstaUp2Date/instaUp2Date.py -p 10.8_vanilla, it downloads the available updates and then it errors trying to find the installer disc. The InstallDMG.dmg is located in ./instadmg/InstallerFiles/BaseOS

    Here is the error message I receive.

    Finding the Installer disc for 10.8_vanilla
    Traceback (most recent call last):

    I did try restarting the computer.

    I had the exact same problem, but just found the solution. The current 10.8_vanilla catalogue does not recognize the updated 10.8.2 build, 12C60. You’ll need to modify the catalogue file until a new one is released by adding “, 12C60” to the end of the first line and commenting out the 10.8.2 Supplemental Update, since it is already baked into 12C60. The Java release, should you choose to use it (see elsewhere for side effects), is now at 2012-006 but the path is the same as for -005, so the checksum needs to change to the one Apple notes on their download page. For convenience, here is my version of the 10.8_vanilla catalogue:

    Installer Disc Builds:	12A269, 12B19, 12C54, 12C60
    Output Volume Name:	Macintosh HD
    Output File Name:	10.8_vanilla
    OS Updates:
    # We're assuming you're using the newest 10.8.2 build 12C54 as your install 'media', otherwise uncomment (remove # from the beginning of) the next line; if using build 12C60, add a comment hash to the beginning of the last line as well
