    So, I upgraded to 10.10.2 on 3 various Macs, no real issues seen. It downloads, processes, then reboots and upon reboot, completes the install, taking another 7-15 minutes (depending on if the boot disk is SSD or HDD) and then it's done.

    However, on one Mac, it has a bootable Mavs partition.

    On that Mac, I downloaded 10.10.2 with no issues, but after the reboot it came up on the Mavs partition, so it was running 10.9.2. I chose the Yosemite boot partition as the boot device, and rebooted.

    On that reboot, there was no further installation activity, unlike the other 3 Macs where there was an additional phase as noted above.

    The Mac in question says it's running 10.10.2, but I'm skeptical that the upgrade completed 100%.

    Any ideas on how to verify the upgrade and/or what might have been missed in the last phase that wasn't done?

    But if it restarted after applying the update, even on the wrong startup disk it means the update was done properly. Had it not completed you wouldn't be able to boot I think, or it would still say 10.10.1.

    No, it restarted in what I would consider the middle of the upgrade process.

    It never did the remaining part of the upgrade - not that I could see anyways.

    Let's say a typical Apple upgrade these days has (guessing) 3 main phases:

    A Download
    B Pre-boot processing
    C Post-boot process

    The mac in question never did "C."
