This command was working previously in macOS High Sierra to install the OS via Terminal:

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Big\ Sur.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall -applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Big\ Sur.app

But I'm getting:

"--applicationpath" is deprecated in macOS 10.14 and greater. Please remove it from your invocation.

  • What do you want that you can’t get by a double-click on the icon? open ______.app is effectively the same in most situations.

  • Which isn’t “most situations” and wasn’t mentioned in your question. Hence the request for detail.

This seems to work:

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Big\ Sur.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --agreetolicense --nointeraction --forcequitapps

I advise you to begin by :

/Applications/Install\ macOS\ Big\ Sur.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --usage

to have more informations on options of command line.
