Did I update?

Howard E. Rosenman
Sometimes my late 2009 iMac shuts down when it is supposed to restart. This morning, that apparently happened during the update from High Sierra 10.13 to 10.13.1. I had to turn the machine on with the power button. After the machine started, nothing further happened re: the update - the machine just booted normally.

My "About this Mac" still shows 10.13. If I click on the version number, it says "10.13 (17A405)" - is that 10.13.1?

The update mo longer appears as available in the App Store app, and it doesn't show as having been installed in the last 30 days. If I choose "System Report" and then Installations, I do see 10.13.1 as having been installed this morning.

Thoughts?

Sorry, no, 10.13.1 is build 17B48.

Open MAS to the Feature page and click on the "macOS High Sierra" icon or just click <<a href="macappstore://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-high-sierra/id1246284741?mt=12" class="">macappstore://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-high-sierra/id1246284741?mt=12>. If it says "Open" rather than "Download" that means you have a High Sierra installer somewhere on a mounted drive (normally in your Applications folder, but could be elsewhere if you moved it). Otherwise, click the "Download" button and wait.

I was able to solve this by searching Apple support for the 10.13.1 downloadable installer.

What I thought was a failure to restart was apparently just a very long time where the machine is still running but the screen is black. This time I forced myself to be patient. The machine rebooted, the installation continued, and I am now firmly on 10.13.1.

Thanks!
