By Karen Haslam 08 Oct Installing new versions of macOS on a Mac should be a pretty simple exercise. The Mac tells you there's an update available via a pop up in Notification Centre - in some cases depending on your settings it's even downloaded it already and just needs your go-ahead to install. However, sometimes when you click Go on an update things go a bit pear-shaped. In this tutorial we'll look at what to do if your Mac stalls or freezes during an operating system software update.
In addition, with macOS Catalina arriving on Macs, we look into what to do if you can't download macOS Catalina, fixes for when macOS Catalina won't install, and what you need to do if your Mac freezes in the middle of the update. We'll also explain what to do if you see the message: "macOS could not be installed on your computer" below. And, if like us, you are confronted with an message that: "The update package has been deleted since being downloaded from the Apple Software Update server" we'll address that too.
There are a few reasons why the macOS download or installation process might be interrupted.

If it happens to be a new version of the Mac operating system and you are attempting to download it just after release there could be problems at Apple's end. With many people accessing the servers at the same time the initial download of the software may be slow and as the update installs it may freeze up as it tries to verify your detals with Apple. Perhaps the issue is at your end. In fact it's always wise to run through a standard series of checks before you perform an operating system update on a Mac. We cover preparation steps in the first section of our guide showing How to update macOS on a Mac.

But in this article, we cover possible solutions to try if your Mac freezes up in the middle of an update or if you see an error message indicating that there is a problem. While attempting to download Catalina the day after launch we saw an error message indicating: "The update package has been deleted since being downloaded from the Apple Software Update server". Initially we assumed that this meant that Apple had withdrawn the software, but on further investigation it appeared that it related to issue was with our network.
It may well have been the case that with so many Apple devices on our network there was a lot of competition for bandwidth. We stopped streaming radio, turned off other devices, and moved our Mac closer to the router. If we'd have had an ethernet cable handy we'd have used that. Another thing that could be slowing things down in Content Caching. Apparently Content Caching reduces bandwidth usage and speeds up installation on supported devices by storing software updates on the computer.
We made sure that the Cache Size was unlimited - click on Options. And we also made sure that the option selected beside Cache was All Content. With these changes in place the download was complete in half an hour rather than the 10 hours initially anticipated. When Apple releases a new macOS update a lot of people will rush to grab it, which can cause problems with Apple's servers. So your first port of call could be to check the System Status page and check macOS Software Update to see if there are any known issues.
You might find that things are quicker if you move from a WiFi to a wired connection. If you have a Ethernet cable and the necessary adaptor if your Mac only has a USB-C port, plug yourself directly into the hub. Your download will be much faster over a wired connection.
If you are running The solution they outline in the article:. To resolve the issue, you may have to force restart your computer using the power or interrupt button. Avoid the issue in the future by ejecting any shared volumes before taking the actions described above. If you accidentally trigger this issue, restoring connectivity to the server might eliminate the need for a forced restart.
I haven't had problems with disconnected network drives, but I have seen myself the Finder error and have always just restarted my Mac saving all work beforehand. This thread here suggests though, that Finder will recover itself in a matter of few minutes so give that a try. I have exactly same problem. Everything works thou, so if I click share it's up and running. I guess my problem is related that network hasn't really woken up from sleep and therefore I get this annoying message dialog. So my preferably solution would be that message box would be ignored.
Does anyone know a way to do this? Or maybe shell script which would kill this message box.. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

Mac OS I guess you are using DHCP, right? My office and home networks use DHCP and the disconnection issue went away with the upgrade to I have been fighting with a new set of MACs that we are adding to the system. Adjusted Shared Permissions I'm at the point where users can log in. But it doesn't actually disconnect the volume. I can still access the file and folders on the network drive.
But some applications can't save to the mounted folder. Has anyone had any experience working with Macs in netware?
