Unable to update to it on latest 10.12.6 through the App Store. It shows the update but when I click on the grey update button nothing happens. No downloading or anything. The other weird thing is the update only reveals itself if I first click on another tab such as “featured” then click back again on the updates tab and only then will it show up.

I was able to download the dmg from the Apple website, but I think I’m going to hold off on it because of the odd behavior from the App Store.

I had a similar experience a couple of days ago with several app updates, but I had already applied Security Update 2018-003 the week before.

I know of no reason to hold up with installing the .dmg version and a half dozen reason why you should install it immediately, listed here:

I’d recommend installing from the .dmg—the way you describe the problems sounds very much like an App Store quirk, not anything related to the update.
