For what it's worth, I just used homebrew (http://brew.sh/): brew update brew install openssl brew link --force openssl openssl version -a If one of the bad versions come up (1.0.1a-f), you can figure out which version of openssl you're using, this way: which openssl Often this is from /usr/bin. To make sure you get the updated version, drop a ...

If it's asking for a different Apple ID to update an app or apps, then they have been purchased on the other Apple account. You can't change the Apple ID that an app has been purchased with. Instead, delete the app from the device and purchase it again with the Apple ID that you want the app registered to.

This is real, yes. A lot of older software updates (but also newer ones e.g. some 10.14.6 Supplemental Update from September 2019!) are signed with a certificate which becomes/became invalid on Oct, 24 2019. To keep them in the update game the intermediate certificate authority and its certficates have been replaced – the payload stays the same – and they ...

After some unsuccessful googling, followed by loads and loads of digging and grepping through binary files, I stumbled upon a key in a .plist which, when written, appeared to make the system temporarily forget it had any updates to bother me with. Running: defaults write com.apple.systempreferences AttentionPrefBundleIDs 0 fixed my issue for now on 10.14.1....

Fortunately I was able to simply reinstall macOS High Sierra by booting into Recovery Mode (Command ⌘ + R) and choosing Reinstall macOS High Sierra. I did not erase my drive first since system volume was intact (no errors after running Disk Utility). I simply reinstalled the OS and I was able to log back in with all my data, settings, and apps still there ...

To prevent Apple’s Software Update from reminding you that its time to upgrade to macOS Catalina: Open Terminal (in the Utilities folder in the Applications Folder) Run sudo /usr/sbin/softwareupdate --ignore "macOS Catalina" Enter your login password if asked, hit Enter and you should get confirmation that “macOS Catalina” updates will be ignored. Later, ...

It can be found in an easy to read format using the system information app: System Information.app > Software > Installations System information can be found in /Applications/Utilities/System Information.app or via Spotlight.

You can now simply go to System Preferences > App Store, and turn off "Automatically check for updates." No messing with firewalls, and just works with App Store. So just remember to check every now and then manually to find out when you have updates!

When Apple releases a minor system version (e.g. 10.8.1 -> 10.8.2), they generally release the update in two forms: A delta update containing all of the files that changed in the latest update, which therefore can only upgrade from the immediately previous version. For example, in order to install the 10.8.2 delta update, your system must already be ...

TLDR - Go to General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Manage Storage (under Storage) > Select the update item (should have the settings icon and named iOS 9.x.x) > Delete Update There is a much easier solution to the nagging reminders explained in the following link. https://discussions.apple.com/message/29004014#29004014 Yes there is a way to disable it. ...

You can check if you have a non-standard update source: defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate CatalogURL If CatalogURL does not exist, that's OK and the standard situation to pull from the non-beta updates. To force a beta source, you write this key (as root if needed with sudo) sudo /usr/sbin/softwareupdate --set-catalog https://...

Until recently, the answer was no but there are open source efforts to replicate the Mac App Store in a command-line based tool: https://github.com/mas-cli/mas To install: brew install mas Once it's in, you could update all the apps that are available with: mas upgrade If you don't like this tool, you could also use MDM tools to package an already ...

I would try the following command in the terminal to download and install updates available for your mac. All commands below require administrator privileges and will prompt for your password which is NOT relayed to the screen. You will not see the caret move at all as you type it in or be replaced by "*" per character of your password. This is normal. sudo ...

You cannot download it because iOS 7 is not supported on any iPhone model prior to the iPhone 4. The latest version of iOS that will run on the 3Gs is iOS 6.1.6 -- which you have.

Apple has also now fixed the same issue which occurred with macOS 10.14 Mojave offering CLTools for macOS 10.15 Catalina. For a short time, the 10.14 catalog included 10.15's tools, but this has since been removed from this catalog and only included in the beta catalog. https://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-10.14-10.13-10.12-10.11-10.10-10....

Note: This will only work on machines with an OS prior to macOS 10.7 There is a commandline app called softwareupdate that you have to run as root. sudo softwareupdate --list for example will give you the list of apps that are set to update. You can then run sudo softwareupdate --install {app-name} This won't let you install a new application that you ...

Same error happened to me when I received an update from 10.13.1 to 10.13.2. If you boot with shift button pressed, you will be able to enter safe mode and try to download and reinstall an update. It did not help to me so I booted holding Option key and chosen regular Mac HD (not an update volume). Booted to my Mac without safe mode and tried to reinstall ...

I just discovered the missing solution here: http://osxdaily.com/2012/11/15/stop-software-update-mac-os-x/ You can selectively disable notifications about specific software updates you don't care about (like useless App updates) by control-clicking the update inside the App Store to reveal a hidden "Hide Update" option. This is best for those who want to ...

Third-party utilities such as Alfred, TextExpander, or MagicPrefs might appear to take "control" of the window as far as the OS is concerned. You can find the culprit by disabling them all, and turning them on one by one until you find one (or more) which affects Keychain in that manner. You can add the offending program to the list of approved apps ( ...

At the installation log, I clicked on startup disk and chose Macintosh HD and restarted. The system successfully booted into 10.13.3. Now I'm trying to update the OS from the App Store again.

Recent versions of Xcode require macOS 10.14.4 or higher to run. Since you have 10.13.6, you can't run that version of Xcode. With 10.13.6 the most recent version of Xcode you can use is Xcode 10.1. Also, Macs made in 2010 cannot run macOS 10.14.4, which is why that version of macOS is not available to you as an update. Your Mac can't be updated past macOS ...

I did same on iPad2. I have managed to remove the download (which wasn't installed). Select settings, general, usage, manage storage when the app list loads, you should see ios8, select this and then delete. Hope you're successful.

One thing that worked for me was holding down the Option key and selecting the original partition to boot into. Then downloading the update directly from Apple and installing it. macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 Combo Update can be downloaded here.

Show the App Store's Debug menu (enter the following in Terminal): defaults write com.apple.appstore ShowDebugMenu -bool true Select Reset Application and restart the App Store Log in to the App Store through the Purchases tab. Reboot.

If you open the Console application I believe it defaults to "All Messages" which might not provide any useful information. However if you open the Console application, then open the "/var/log" option at the bottom of the left-hand source pane you should find an entry for "install.log". If you select that you should see some information on what ...

The easiest solution is the one by commenter Michael Buen. It has worked on 20 Macs I've seen have this issue. Apple Menu -> Select Startup Disk -> Restart (after clicking your boot drive) resolves the issue, at least temporarily. This can be done at the error screen, by clicking on some empty space in the grey message box to get the apple menu bar to ...
