I too had this error. After navigating to Users/username/Library/Java/Extensions and moving xerces.jar to the trash, the launcher was able to properly download the update.
What I expected was the launcher to
either download the remaining files or just open minecraft (it didn't even get past the Launcher).
the bin is also missing as far as I'm aware.
what ended up happening was: The loading bar was full, the report got up to: "Libraries': Used own copy as it matched etag
Job 'Version & Libraries' finished successfully" and the launcher just stopped launching. It should be also noted that I have:
1. re-downloaded minecraft
2. deleted the original directory/renamed it
3. reopened it several times
steps to reproduce the bug:
1. Open the launcher
2. click play
3. it just loads then stops before the actual thing loads
note: it started when I received the 13w42a snapshot. and hasn't stopped since.
