I am having trouble to download the latest OS Update. When I try to install the update using native mac features I get an error like

update couldn't be verified. While loading it was probably damaged...

So I tried command line.

softwareupdate -i -a

Unfortunately, this Mac Mini can only be upgraded to macOS version 10.7.5.

This Apple Community post also verifies this.

    As a comment, not an answer, You can try to convert it to a Hackintosh. You might be able to change some plist files in the installer (forums.macrumors.com/threads/…) – CousinCocaine May 26 '18 at 20:18
