After updating my MacBook Pro to 10.11.2, I am having huge issues with iCloud. Thus far, I am noticing that:
- I can no longer use Messages.
- I cannot use FaceTime.
- I cannot authenticate into iCloud via the Preference Pane.
I have verified my iCloud credentials elsewhere (on another Mac, on iCloud.com, on an iOS device).
Does anyone know how I can force iCloud to recognize my credentials on this machine?
EDIT: In response to the myriad suggestions by Tetsujin, I have catalogued them here:
- NVRAM reset has been done.
- Started up MacBook in Safe Mode.
- CANNOT use Messages from Safe Mode.
- Checked status of service (UP).
- Signed out of Messages and Facetime on all devices and back in.
- Restarted routers and incoming internet.
- Tried alternate ISP.
- Verified SN displays, and is valid.
- Disabled all firewalls.
- Checked veracity of /private/etc/hosts file.
- Verified that no proxy was being used.
- Deleted Keychain entries for imessage and com.apple.idms.
- Verified that the Guest account CAN access Messages.
- Deleted com.apple.apsd.plist and rebooted.
- Reset SMC.
- Reinstalled OS X 10.11.2.
None of these things has worked for me.
EDIT 2: I am also having issues running apps purchased via the AppStore. Each time I run one, I have to log into the AppStore to verify the purchase.
EDIT 3: I've done myriad changes including deletes of Caches, StartupItems, Libraries, etc. (in concert with AppleCare Support), and nothing has remediated the issue so far. I'll document everything as time permits.
EDIT 4: The issue is more than just with iCloud, but also involves certain apps that require access to some subfolders in ~/Library. For example, when I try to update EFI's Fiery Software, I get this:
And when I execute OmniFocus, I see this response:
And some apps that use the Sparkle framework to perform updates simply fail. iSale 5 is one example:
Some apps work fine, while others obviously do not. There is a major permissions issue here somewhere. I just haven't been able to track it down.
