I couldn't get it from update; I downloaded it from the apple site directly. When I rebooted, it cycled through the spinner repeatedly. I shut down, on reboot it did the spinner continuously, then rebooted itself at least twice before getting to the login and giving me a heart attack. This does seem like a flakey load process (much preferred 10.6 and earliers update cycle).

After all of that it did boot into the system properly and everything seems back to normal.
