How to update macOS

1. Restart your Mac and try again. This is often the simplest solution and should be tried first.
2. Check for updates to macOS. If there are any available, install them and then try to update or install macOS again.
3. Try using a different internet connection. If you’re on Wi-Fi, try connecting to a different network or use a wired connection instead.
4. Make sure your Mac has enough storage space available for the update or installation. You can check this by going to the Apple menu and choosing About This Mac, then selecting Storage from the sidebar. If your Mac doesn’t have enough free space, you’ll need to free up some space before continuing.
