It appears that Apple listened on one point (which is great). The software updates have been restored to Apple's website. Previously, many just pointed to the Mac App store to buy Final Cut Pro X. You were able to run the update through Software Updater, but it was difficult to access the files for backup.
- Go here http://support.apple.com/downloads/#final%20cut%20studio.
- Download the ones you need.
- Burn them to disc and put them with your Final Cut Studio install discs.
Thank you Apple.
