I've been having problems in getting 5.1.1 to update. Updater said it did so but the version number is incorrect.
Anyhow one can run the OS X installer right over the existing system. It checks to see what changes were made and just installs the missing or damaged stuff. I've done it twice so far without deleterious effect. TBS, it hasn't helped by IE update problem.
