Description of Issue

Mac mini constantly asks to be updated, and after downloading software and restarting, it goes back to asking for update.

Update of Mac OS or Roon?

Roon. It keeps downloading, installing, asking to be re-launched, only to have me do the same thing all over again.

Ok not sure about that, but I have had the same issue with the Mac OS.

Seems a strange one that, like the installation is not completing. Have you removed Roon and tried to reinstall?

No. That I haven’t done. I wanted to see what the Roon team might suggest.

It’s the weekend so there will be no official Roon support reply until Monday.
I think @Michael_Harris suggestion is a good one and should not hurt anything and is likely to work.


Ali I fully understand that, but it is generally the first thing they suggest.

If it can wait until Monday then always good to wait for official confirmation

Thanks, Michael. I will do that in the morning.

Well, gentlemen. That did the trick!

Thank you and have a great week ahead.


Great to hear that :+1:
