Just keep trying. My guess is also is it's on Apple's side.
Tried more than 20 times already bro
Are you using PLDT as your isp? I think they have an issue with connecting to apple's cdn in our region. I used a VPN to solve that issue. Those who are with Globe and Eastern don't seem to have this download issue.
I tried using my tethered Globe mobile internet connection to update. I still get the same installation error.
i am using PLDT and Converge on my LB Router. I have successfully update to Big Sur
I see. You may try clearing your caches and see if it resolves. Or use a VPN like Protonvpn or Nordvpn (or probably any other trusted VPN). I hope you get to update successfully.
I tried again today using the PLDT internet connection it the update finally worked. I didn't have to do anything other than to click update so I think the errors from before is an issue with Apple's servers.
Yes PLDT but I think its not the issue. I have 3 Macs that used my ISP. Only one had an issue.
I understand. I've experienced most update errors when using PLDT as my ISP. When I use other ISPs that I have access to, it doesn't seem to happen.
i downloaded it earlier, it says it is finished but 1G short fo the total size of the installer, nope I won't install it yet.
Its working already a couple of days ago. the culprit is the Apple internal servers. Our local ISPs are not.
Is it worth the risk?
don’t see anything new worth tinkering with. Will probably wait for a major update.
^ If its a bothersome task to update I think it wont be worth it. Although I haven’t encountered any major issues, I didn’t notice significant performance improvement and functionality. And the new iOSish UI and icons are not my type. In fact I hate em. I updated a 2020 MBP to see what its like and left older macs on Catalina. Every time I use the older units I also miss the old UI. Will revert to Catalina this weekend.
For me its worth it. What I like for Big Sur is the capability to automatically connect my AirPods to what device I am using. When I use my phone, it automatically connects from using my Mac.
I also like the feel of the UI. Its not that "square-rish"
Most notable update is the better security/privacy.
one thing that I've noticed about Big Sur is that it spikes the temp of my rMBP 13" compared to when I had Catalina installed. The difference is 10C-15C.
Since my mid-2014 Mac Mini was running too slowly on Catalina, decided to experiment on installing Big Sur. Anyway, if a failure, would go ahead and downgrade to Mojave.
Surprise, surprise - the ol' Mac Mini actually is zippier now than it was on Catalina! Still exploring - it was taking forever downloading updates, before I realized that all around the world people were also upgrading. Today download speeds for updates was back to decent.
I just had a BSOD on my MacBook Pro. The Black Screen of Death. This is the first time I encountered this and it happened on Big Sur.
FWIW, I sent the crash report to Apple.
