Mac Won't Let Me Download Software

Posted on by

It says i need apple x11, but when i try that it says my computer already holds new software?! The installation file downloads to your Applications folder and once the download completes, it should automatically open and prompt you to start the install, at which point you would have the option to quit the install. If that didn't happen, I would guess that the download was incomplete.

Use Software Update

  1. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu , then click Software Update to check for updates.
  2. If any updates are available, click the Update Now button to install them. Or click “More info” to see details about each update and select specific updates to install. You might be asked to enter your administrator password.
  3. When Software Update says that your Mac is up to date, the installed version of macOS and all of its apps are also up to date. That includes Safari, Music, Photos, Books, Messages, Mail, Calendar, and FaceTime.
  4. To automatically install future updates, including for apps that you got from the App Store, select “Automatically keep my Mac up to date.” Your Mac will notify you when updates require it to restart, so you can always choose to install those later.
