Resolved Question:

I need to upgrade operating system to snow leopard before going onto Lion in the not so distant future. Do I buy OS 10.6 then update or 10.6.8 and not need so many updates?

Yes. Buy the Mac OS X 10.6 Retail Installation discs and install it on your Mac. After installing 10.6.x (x is version number), you can update directly to Mac OS X 10.6.8 from Apple menu > Software Updates

After installing 10.6.8, you can buy/download latest OS X and other applications from Snow Leopard's AppStore as digital download.

FYI Apple had removed 10.7 Lion from AppStore when they released 10.8 Mountain Lion

You can buy 10.6 Snow Leopard Retail disc from or etc

Let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting. Don't Rate my answer until you are satisfied.
