    You shouldn’t be surprised by this. They don’t care about nvidia. It’s amd.

    I just upgraded.... I like dark mode but is there anyway to brighten the white (really gray) text. Better contrast would help. Perhaps I am not looking in the right location for settings.

    Just downloaded Combo. Denies to install on the only SSD partition I got (labeled macOS on scr.) Says, "macOS 10.14.3 Update can't be installed on this disk. This volume does not meet the requirements for this update"
    Screenshot 2019-01-23 at 04.03.45.png
    Have no idea what's wrong with it. Everything was fine with my setup before this very combo.
    Also, I got same issue in the SysPrefs Software Update pane, that there were no updates by the first opening, then notification of 1 update appeared under apple menu, but it won't download after spinning for a while, saying that there are no updates.

    See my post #55 above. ( https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...s-mojave-10-14-3.2166339/page-3#post-27023671 )

    Use the delta instead of the combo. The delta DOES work.

    Try that instead.

    Just a thought, there might be code in the combo that is probably searching for a T2 chip, and upon not finding it, thinking that we have a compromised computer and therefore not letting the update install.

    Can't be sure, but just a thought. Anyone successful with the combo on T2 chipped machines?

    The amount of dishwasher powder required has reduced rather admirably after 10.14.3. Apple is getting more efficient at coding.

    BUG

    10.14.3 release version has one weird bug for my MacBook Air 2017, that existed through the betas too. Plugging/ unplugging the charger disconnects me from the internet. Anyone else with an Air, care to check? :)

    Apple does send notifications when a new macOS update is out. Obviously they don't notify everybody at the same time because their servers would be hammered.

    Nope. Have installed combo over(!) delta just fine.
    More likely you got a sort of hardware issue with either of the logic board power stages.

    What I 'love' (not) is that you can't even select the text of the URLs in the dialog box to easily go see what the update is about. Seems aside from the lack of details, they don't even want you to go read the ultra-limited notes that there are.

    I think all these panels have become sloppy web-apps that have caching issues. The app-store, app-updates, etc. are all a big mess.

    So I too had the same problem with the Combo. Unpackaged the file and looked at the Distribution file.
    The Distribution file does a series of checks to see if your Mac can accept the update,
    In the Volume check, it references previous build numbers of Mojave, if your build number is not on the list it stops the install with the error we are seeing.
    Guess what, Apple have omitted to include quite a few of the previous build numbers of Mojave, so that is why the Combo
    is stalling. If I add the build number for 10.14.2 (18C54) to the array and save the Distribution file and repackage the files
    I can now install the Combo.

    I had a look at the Distribution file of the Delta update and that has considerably more build numbers in its list, so I wonder if the developers got them mixed up.

    I did not make it clear at the onset that this never was an issue with 10.14.2. It was an issue with 10.14.3 betas, for which I was not using them. I had hoped the release version might resolve the peculiar issue, apparently, it has not.

    Once again, my first thought was something to do with WiFi card and MLB, but then as I went about isolating the issue, I downgraded from 10.14.3 betas to 10.14.2 and I realised that this was not an issue with 10.14.2. So.. this IS a bug with 10.14.3, not a hardware issue, so far as I understand. :)

    So, anyone with an Air at their disposal, would you kindly check for this issue?

    Or, something else is going on. I am curious to understand if the build numbers were just erroneously absent or intentionally not put in the first place. :oops:

    Think they probably just messed it up, they have been messing up updates quite a lot lately.

    Oh yes they are. 10.14.3 disconnects the WiFi on my Air 2017 each time I plug/ unplug the charger. 10.14.2 had no such issues.

    really solid update.
    no problems.
    machine seems quicker.
    update needed 2 reboots. all done automatically.
    Mojave is turning out to be a great macOS.
    before (High Sierra etc) Continuity features always seemed to be breaking, etc.
    i have had no problems so far with Mojave.

    literally, everything just works.

    Thank you for letting us know

    I can confirm that the boot delay is indeed gone

    Mac mini late 2014 booting from external SSD connected via USB 3.0

    Finally

    Another one who can't update using the 10.14.3 combo updater on my MacBook Pro 13" (late 2016 with USB-C) from 10.14.2.

    Whilst there are workarounds here, it's annoying and again showing a lack of attention to details by the relevant Apple engineering team. Not a good representation of the company from both consumers' and investors' eyes.
