MACOSX 10.10.5 upgrade ( my rant )

Here's a rant.

Apple continue to amaze me on just how badly they are becoming. From hardware or software, they are dropping in quality. Simple updates are failing and software is not what it used to be.

I've been trying to upgrade a simple macbook 11" from 10.10.4  to 10.10.5 for the last 5 days,  and no matter what method I take, the system completes the OS download and  upon restart, never makes it into yosemite 10.10.5.


Very sad and what's up with the lock button when you try to open iTunes during a upgrade?

Apple should roll-out a new label  named "iDisaster"  for there next OS major release. Support is also getting very clueless &  it's like Apple hired a lot of $MS$ engineers.

It's also a good thing to review all CVEs related to the apple lineup of software;


So for now;

1>  my logs show nothing.

( cat /Library/Receipts/InstallHistory.plist )

2> And i'm still stuck in  10.10.4 and no updates.

So I ended up download the 2gb  download combo after trying a  manual update from the cli & a restart. This failed also.

Here's apple support link for  the direct software update file that's going on now. I will post a comment if that completes.
