I’m still on Catalina 10.15.7.
My Numbers.app shows as v11.1 (7031.0.102)
I imported a CSV, and get a unique rounded-rectangle alert
! Numbers update is available
I swipe right to dismiss this and keep working. Less than 30 seconds later, a notification slides down from my current sheet:
A Numbers Update is Available.
To collaborate on this spreadsheet, get the latest version of Numbers from the App Store or use Numbers on iCloud
Offering three buttons
- Go to iCloud.com
- Not now
- Go to App Store
I click “Not now,” and 12 seconds later the same notification appears.
At this point, Numbers is almost-frozen. When I select “sort ascending” for a small table, it briefly reorganizes and then reverts to the order when notification showed. I can’t do data entry.
Searched wide for answers. I deleted my Numbers.app. I attempted to download an earlier version.
Tried to download an earlier version through my account
App Store > my name > scroll down long list of purchases, > click download on Numbers
The app installed this way shows the same version number and behavior — v11.1 (7031.0.102)
Downloaded the iWork9.3 package. I tried to install, but it refused because “An eligible Keynote application was not found in the location Applications/iWork ’09.”
Well, of course all my iWork apps were at 11.1.
Any further suggestions?
