    Same problem here

    Any ideas for a solution? All previous updates worked just fine.

    I ended up restarting and downloading the whole thing again. It then worked.

    It's funny, I often get calls from friends, and co-workers for assistance with computers. My first recommendation is always, "Try to restart your computer and try again." It's amazing how many times the "problem" will disappear.

    Restarting did not help me, but I finally was able to install DP7 with delta updater outside app store application. This delta update is only available for developers from Apple Developer forums.

    Pretty good chance the OP has solved this issue, seeing as the post you responded to is almost a year and a half old.

    This just happened to me when trying to install the latest version of macOS Sierra public beta. The alert is followed by “Click “Show Details” to see the available updates.” and goes into an endless loop of trying to restart and the error message coming up again when you click on “Show Details.” It did not happen with my MacBook Pro or in a secondary volume in my Mac Pro, but only to the main volume.

    Happily, ex3m82’s suggestion (sudo software update -i -a) worked! It alerts you to restart right away. After the restart, I went back to the App Store, and this time the update was successful. Thanks, ex3m82.

    It’s funny that the thread started with the error being reported with the installation of “preview 7” and here, two years later, it’s still doing it while installing Sierra public beta version 7. What goes around comes around.
