Trying to download and install El Capitan beta 2 but the app store crashes every single time i try to download it. Anyone else getting this ? Anyone know how to fix this? I can not do anything.

I'm having the exact same problem. It shows that I have an update but every time I open the App Store, it's blank. I can't even download apps. Fix?

2 possible fixes:

1: Update via Terminal
Code:
sudo softwareupdate -ia
2: Delete the appstore plist and restart it
Code:
killall "App Store"
cp ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.appstore.plist ~/Desktop/com.apple.appstore.plist
rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.appstore.plist
open -a "App Store"

I did this and it worked for me!
