Why can't I download the 10.5.8 OS update on Mac Mini A1103, 2005?

Text:

I reformulated, the original Panther OS to Leopard 10.5.1 with instillation disks and the use of a Vodafone Internet Dongle. The new updates showed in the Software Updates, it was Leopard 10.5.8 There were two files and I tried the two together, one was Tunes, I  later tried downloading without this file - but with no success either.

The download went as far as 13 minutes remaining, but just kept endeavouring to come in; after a couple of hours I gave up.

I was thinking that the USB Vodafone Mobile Internet Dongle could be taking up valuable space and that - that might be the fault.

Or possibly that I might have to increase the Hard Drive with new hardware on this Apple Mini Mac A1103, OS X,   2005.

Later on I noticed that the New Update was no longer showing as available on the Software Update column, what might I do if this happens next time I try?
