If you’re having trouble installing updates for Mac OS, there are several reasons for this. But sometimes a simple solution is just around the corner. Typically, Mac OS downloads updates in the background, and after downloading updates, the operating system will let you know that you have updates, but sometimes there are problems that cause the update to crash. This is when you may need a manual update to solve problems or to install an update.
Let’s start the upgrade process, just like with an automatic update. To do this, click on the apple icon in the top left corner of the screen, and then on the Software Update. This will open a new window. There should be a button with the “Check Now” button.
Now it will check for updates that your Mac needs. When you’re finished, you’ll see a list of all the updates available. Remember the list, which we’ll then use to select updates on the download page. Go to the Apple Support Download page, you should see the list of downloads on the homepage and the search bar at the top, go back to your list and copy the update name to that panel, then click Enter.
Now the update should appear below, click “Download” next to the image, and the download will start, or you will be asked where to put the file to download, just select your desktop for quick access.
After downloading the file. DMG can run, you click on it, and the operating system will check the file and make sure the file is okay. The updates will now automatically open the installation screen, but some will open a new window with the file .pkg, click on it to start installing.
The installation will now open as normal and tell you that you’re going to install an update, click Next to continue, conditions and conditions will appear on the next screen, and you’ll be asked to make sure that the backup created your data and closed another app. Once you do this, click “Next,” a small screen should appear in the window asking if you agree to the terms and conditions, click “Agree.”
The installation must now start setting up the installation and then start copying the files to your hard drive. Some updates need to be restarted. If this is the case, there will be a small icon next to the update list on the update screen, so you’ll see a window that needs a reboot when you install, click “Reboot” to continue installing. If you restart, the screen will change and all icons will be removed while the update continues, and you’ll see a small window indicating that the installation is still going on. Once this is done, the Mac will restart and the updates will be correctly installed.
If you don’t need a restart to install, you’ll hit the screen showing that the installation is complete and there should be a large green tick in the center of the window. Click Close to complete the installation.
Now, to check if the updates have been made correctly, click the Apple logo in the top left corner of the screen and click “Update Software”, then click “Check Now” when it appears, the next page should indicate no updates.
