I have a MPB with macOS 10.13 Beta (17A362a) (GM), when trying to install the public release from the App Store I get the following error:

An error occurred while preparing the installation. Try running the application again.

Any idea what is wrong with the installation?

These are the relevant entries I've found in the logs:

  • Is upgrading using the app store download the preferred way? I assumed there would be a patch available in a day or two. – robbyt Sep 26 '17 at 2:04

I've managed to solve this by deleting the installation file and downloading it again.

  • I get stuck in loop rebooting and 20 min later getting an error again. How do I break out of the loop and get to a usable state where I can delete and re-download? – Ryan Sep 26 '17 at 19:24
  • I booted in safe mode, reseted the SMC and the mac booted fine, after the update failed. – Alex Stewart Sep 29 '17 at 8:29
  • @Ryan reset and go into internet recovery. Google the keyboard shortcut to hold down while powering on. Tip: with Apple on the phone (took me hours, several resets). – Daniel Springer Sep 29 '17 at 15:24
  • Not sure why I had so many problems with the Command-R keyboard shortcut to get to recovery mode. But I eventually needed to erase my HD and start over. Wish I had a backup for all my apps, but otherwise not a big deal thanks to cloud. – Ryan Oct 1 '17 at 4:45
