Desperate to update me!

Postby baward » Thu Dec 05, 2019 10:33 pm

Why is my iMac so desperate to upgrade me to MacOS Catalina, and what can I do to stop it reminding me? I have auto updates switched OFF but the system is continually prompting me to upgrade, and it seems to be getting worse.

Thanks!

Can't give you all the details offhand, but if you google how to turn off update notifications, you'll find the procedures well documented.

I think we had a topic on this here recently, not for Catalina - but do check, as the procedures are different depending on what OS you're on.

But yes, you can disable them.

Whether it's useful in this context or not I don't know, and I'm not up to speed on the latest OS X shenanegans but in the absence of concrete advice on how to do this, I searched a little bit and found this: How to stop getting a reminder to update to Catalina in macOS

Maybe there is something there that will help.
