App Store mentions the following message when I attempt to download/install OS X Mavericks (10.9):
"Command line installs of OS X are not supported on systems older than 10.9."
So it says I need 10.9 in order to upgrade to 10.9?
- Mac mini (Late-2012)
- OS X 10.8.5 (12F45)
- iTunes 11.1.2 or above (so far)
- using App Store 1.2.2 (129.16)
Q: How can I download the OS X Mavericks 10.9 installer?
(Note: I'm running the Mac mini over VNC ("Screen Sharing") with no monitor).
- I downloaded the Mavericks Installer using a friend's laptop.
- Visiting the Apple Store seems to be the default support path around this bug: "you can visit any Apple Retail Store to get help with downloading" (http://www.apple.com/osx/how-to-upgrade/)
After thinking perhaps I may have an environment variable set,
I found the following post, and sure enough,
/etc/launchd.conf file had the following line:
setenv COMMAND_LINE_INSTALL 1
which I removed/commented out with a
# in front.
#setenv COMMAND_LINE_INSTALL 1
I'm now running Mavericks 10.9.1 ! :) -- the upgrade went wonderfully.
I had added that line several months ago in order to install something, and had forgotten about it. (Hope this fix helps someone)
- Track temporary configuration changes (or restore to the original when you're done)
