Is anyone else having problems upgrading to the next beta? I grabbed the profile again just in case, but Software Update is not finding anything to upgrade to.

Same here. I get "Unable to check for updates - Failed to download the documentation for the minor update. Please try again later".

I followed Apple's workaround by going to recovery mode, doing the command line thing, no dice. Also removed/redownloaded profile, didn't work. Multiple reboots, shutdowns, etc. I've tried just about everything and it still refuses to see Beta 2. Not sure where to go from here.

The Terminal command fix is in the release document for beta 1 or download the latest profile from the dev site.

I only had to hit command-R in software update.
