I'm trying to install Mavricks and it's not working.


I already did a system update. I'm currently on lion.

Says it's paused in launchpad.


It could be that the servers are so overwhelmed with people downloading the new operating system that you have nothing wrong other than being caught in a stampede.

I would say you might try again in 30 minutes and then back off doubling the time you wait until you get a good download.

  • The icon and button in app store just changed to "downloading". I wish that they'd change the page in the app store to some kind of loading bar. It's pretty janky that you have to go to launchpad to see the progress. – ThomasReggi Oct 23 '13 at 1:35
