I currently have a Macbook Pro late 2011 15 inch which is running Mac OS X 10.7.5 which is a little outdated for my preference. When I run a software update there it says there is no software update available and when I open my Appstore it crashes so I can not download the update for El Capitan. Does this version of the Macbook not support later versions of OS X? How can I get around this issue and download El Capitan?
