when executing /System/Library/CoreServices/Software\ Update.app/Contents/MacOS/Software\ Update or softwareupdate 


Solution:
cd /Library/Receipts
mkdir DELETE-it-if-you-dont-need-it-later
mv *.pkg DELETE-it-if-you-dont-need-it-later
softwareupdate -l


Probably you won't need the remaining db and boms folders as well.
