I downloaded Security Update 2020-002 a couple of days ago using softwareupdate -d -a from a terminal window. Today I tried to install it but nothing happened.

$ softwareupdate -i -a --verbose
Software Update Tool

Finding available software

It does not show up in the softwareupdate history

$ softwareupdate --history | head

Similarly, no pending updates are shown in the App Store:

The Safari update that I downloaded along with this security update did successfully install in the App Store, without appearing to require any download time.

I'm running 10.13.6.

Has Security Update 2020-002 been disabled or cancelled? I searched but didn't find anything indicating that it has been. It still appears in the list of available updates, for example.

  • That link works, thanks! I guess my system got confused with having downloaded the update previously? Weird.

    Thanks! Finally managed to get the 2GB download completed and was able to confirm that it works.
