I installed High Sierra via the app store, the regular way. In the process the fusion drive of my mac mini was converted to apfs.

I am still on 10.13.1, and wondered, why available upgrades did not show up, so I downloaded

  • macOSUpd10.13.2Supplemental.dmg
  • macOSUpd10.13.3.dmg

from the apple website. When I try to install them, I cannot chose any of my drives and the dialog dispays this link for further explaination:

https://beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram/apfsfusion

Which states, that I installed apfs during the High Sierra Beta program, which converted my fusion drive to apfs, which somehow seems not to have been the right thing to do and now I would have to backup, setup newly and restore my whole system, something that would take me days to complete.

The thing is, I never signed up any apple beta program and I am unsure whether I am seeing this notification, because I try to install the upgrades from downloaded disk images and have not waited enough for the upgrade to apear by itself. On the other hand I am already missing out on the second iteration of High Sierra and this makes me uneasy, too.

Could anyone clarify my situation for me?

Apparently, you just have to threaten your mac here on askdifferent. Then, it will just install the 10.13.3 update overnight.

:P
