    This might be the issue if the option is changed manually in your Mac. Now to resolve this issue you need to follow the below mentioned steps,

    STEP 1: Select the Apple icon from the left of your Mac screen.

    STEP 2: Select the System preferences options -> Select on Software update.

    STEP 3: Now select the “Scheduled check” tab.

    STEP 4: Make sure you have the last two checkboxes “Check for updates” and “Download updates automatically” are selected.

    STEP 5: Now next to the check for updates -> Select how frequently you want to do the check for update from the drop down box.

    Hello my dear Friend ...


    Kindly go though the follow steps carefully

    If software update is set to Automatically check for Updates , a window will be showing

    Click CONTINUE to download and Install the Software Updates

    Click SHOW DETAILS to view available Updates ..


    Select one that you want to Install

    To Manually check for the Software Updates , Select SOFTWARE UPDATE from the " APPLE MENU "

    Then click on INSTALL ITEMS

    So software Update downloads , and installs your New Software


    You may need to RESTART your mac after the UPDATES have been installed



    That is it

    VERY GOOD LUCK

    hello sir,

    i want to tell you that there are two main update related options in to your mac device.

    These options are::::>>>>

    1. Check updates

    and 2. Download update automatically.

    According to me you are facing the current problem in to your device due to the fact that you have not selected these options.

    So my suggestion to you is that you simply have to check these options.

    You can do it as follow::::::::>>>>>>>>>>>

    ]turn on your mac device.

    Then tap on the top left screen on your mac.

    Here you have to select the system preferences.

    Then tap on the software updates.

    There you have to tap on the scheduled check.

    There you check the above mentioned two options.

    That's all.

    Thank you.
