Updating the mac system
The operating system for Mac computers has a convenient feature that allows the OS to automatically update itself whenever a new version comes out.
However, for media creators, these automatic updates can cause more problems, not less. Worse, the next version of the mac OS will bring with it the demise of many older, but popular, media codecs.
If you recently tried using this app or any similar apps, go in and uninstall them entirely: They just aren’t compatible with the current Apple update process.
Sometimes the update problem points to a more serious flaw in Mac OS.
The Apple Store will be able to find out what’s wrong or advise you on how to proceed (such as a full wipe of your computer).The best way to deal with this is to reinstall Mac OS entirely. You don’t have to erase your disk to do this, which means you should be able to keep almost all your saved data (which is unlikely to have caused this particular problem).When turning your Mac on, simple hold down the “Command” and “R” keys to get started. From here, choose “Reinstall Mac OS.” When prompted, choose “Continue” and follow the instructions to complete the reinstallation.This problem is often traced back to Mac Books that have the Touch Bar.The Touch Bar acts much like a built-in accessory, and has specific firmware dedicated to its operation.
And in case you were wondering, the softwareupdate command line tool for installing Mac OS X updates through Terminal remains the same.
