I'm facing multiple Boot/Update/Shutdown issues with my Mac Pro (2018)
1) Mac gets stuck on a black screen while shutting down (no cursor or UI elements visible)
2) Mac doesn't boot on it's system drive by default. Instead it goes for a "install" drive and gets stuck on "macOS could not be installed on your computer" (see image below). I'm forced to click the restart button and hold the alt key to be able to chose the appropriate drive and once then boot the OS.
3) From within the OS, Mac keeps warning me that an update is available. I already tried to install it many times but every time the mac restarts in consequence of the update it get's stuck in a black screen for something like 5 min, then I noticed a progress bar that showed up saying that the system is installing the update (2min) and finally, suddenly, it goes back to black and stays there for a long period of time.
I don't get any visual feedback of what's going on I stopped the system by pressing and holding the power button after 10 minutes of black screen.
Powering it back on while pressing the alt key (yes, I need to do this every time I boot the mac in order to avoid the error mentioned in line 2!) and choosing the system drive takes me back to the operating system.
If I open the "App Store" application I will see that the update is still there and to install it I'm forced to download and install it once again.
What's is going on? Am I missing something?
