I guess I also have to finally get around to moving those old iWeb sites I have into something new. For some of the community NGO sites I manage, I've gone with WordPress. For the academic event sites, I've been using Tumult's Hype.

Beyond that, I don't think there's much in the 32-bit world that could bite me in the ass... I ditched Adobe years ago, going with Pixelmator.

Tried to download Catalina this morning and could not. Odd to have damaged software on the App store. Deleted the download and trying again. Go figure.

Try using the System Preferences Update instead, and it's about twice the size apparently. Not sure what all the extra stuff is for.

It looks like Apple is keeping up to date with their latest sloppy OS Updates.

Oh well, nothing new or useable for me that I'd even want to use, and besides my 2011 iMac can't use Catalina officially anyway, and at least the old Mavericks kept some features that I prefer to use that seemed to have been remved from later macOS versions.

EDIT: Opps, it looks like you were using the System Preferences Update rather the smaller one from the App Store.

Every so often Apple sends something out that is actually dangerous and is quickly withdrawn. The one I vividly recall was 10.3.7, which was out for less than 4 hours. I noted it in the morning and was intending to update at lunch, by then it had been pulled. I think that was the one that created major headaches for anyone if their main OS partition name contained a space. 'Macintosh HD' being an obvious example.

No issues here..
Well, actually had to upgrade Citrix Workspace (new client dated 08/10/19) manually as the auto update for that application hadn't picked up on it.

Other then that, no issues.

My laptop performs flawlessly. So far.

I haven't yet upgraded my iMac due to some issues with some old apps that produce messages almost at random and can not be found or deleted. Yes, I turned on the setting to make hidden files visible. An app named NETserver is the worst offender. I think it's for the Brother printer.

FWIW, all the Affinity software is a good alternative to the Adobe stuff.

Do you need such a feature, or just not know how to find and delete the application causing the problem???

As for the NETserverand any Brother printer/scanner:
TidBITS Talk - What is NETserver.app?

EDIT: is this unknown application preventing the installation of Catalina??? That would be a bit odd.

I can't find the app.

I believe NETserver is related to the Brother printers ability to scan. The printer scans are poor quality and not useable so I only tested it once. I possible tossed something that makes the app function some time ago.

Thanks for the help. Eventually I'm going to give up and try the clean install route as a last resort. My experience with previous "clean installs" was not good.

This iMac is less than a year old. My old iMac died. I used my backup to reinstall stuff from the HD out of my old iMac and NETserver possible come from the back up.

If you know it's name or any other of its other attributes, you should be able to find It and any of It's associated Files using Find Any File (FAF):

Download it from here If you really don't have a copy already:
