I am on macOS Catalina 10.15.6 (19G2021) and softwareupdate as well as graphical "Softwareupdate" in "System settings" show two updates for Command Line Tools:

$ softwareupdate --list
Software Update Tool

Finding available software
Software Update found the following new or updated software:
* Label: Command Line Tools beta 5 for Xcode-12.0
    Title: Command Line Tools beta 5 for Xcode, Version: 12.0, Size: 442912K, Recommended: YES,
* Label: Safari14.0CatalinaAuto-14.0
    Title: Safari, Version: 14.0, Size: 65417K, Recommended: YES,
* Label: Command Line Tools for Xcode-12.0
    Title: Command Line Tools for Xcode, Version: 12.0, Size: 429595K, Recommended: YES,

beta 5 was proposed to me for a couple of weeks now, but I did not want to install it. Why did I end up with beta 5 and how do I get rid of the duplicate here?

  • I found one way to get rid of the duplicate by executing: softwareupdate -i "Command Line Tools for Xcode-12.0".
  • Now beta 5 is gone as well.

But how to get rid of entries I do not want there? "System settings" were nudging me once a day to install the beta.
