    The update appeared for me, I left my MacBook while it was downloading - it didn’t finish and now clicking the download button doesn’t appear to do anything at all.

    Other build is simply via system update as usual. It seems the 18A389 needs a full install.

    For those who can't find the update. You have to go to: System Preferences => Software Update

    Guess this is new since 10.14... welcome to the iOS-zation of macOS....

    No the issue he has is that he's running the last beta build and it's not getting the update. I have a computer with the same problem

    I'm not on the beta and I can't fetch the update either. It shows 10.14 as "up to date".

    I went back to a 10.13.6 partition and tried to download the full installer via app store. Stops at 22MB.

    It's actually a return to the old way, first introduced with Mac OS 9 (or maybe even 8).

    I have the 2018 MacBook pro and Im currently on 10.14 not sure if I should try installing the new update today or give it another day(Since some are reporting issues with downloading, installing) and would I have to go into system preferences to get the update or the app store?

    I too am on 18A389, on a 2017 15" MBP with Touch Bar, and it's now 5:37pm PDT and it's still not showing up for me either. I've been checking all day long.

    But who isn’t on build 18A389? Wasn’t that the release build of 10.14?

    Is there an official Apple support document addressing this issue?

    Edit: Nevermind. I never realized the release version was 18A391. I assumed the last beta was the release version. Thank you!

    Mac OS used to have software update in a separate app called software update; which could also be opened from system prefs. IMO, this is much better. I hate software updates in the app store. Thank god thats done.

    I had the same problem.
    You need to go to “About this “mac” and then click on check software update.

    Updated from 10.14 without a single problem. Content Caching on the iMac served the update to two MacBook Pro units on the network, in seconds. In another location, my Mac Mini also updated without an issue. Tomorrow it is the turn of the iMac at the office.

    I downloaded the 10.14.1 updater from the link in reply 18 above.

    My hardware:
    Mac Mini 2012, booting Mojave from 2 drives:
    a. External platter-based hard drive with APFS partition for Mojave
    b. External USB3 SSD with copy of Mojave running in HFS+

    I first downloaded the installer while running my day-to-day OS (Low Sierra).

    I copied it to the HDD/APFS Mojave drive (which I use -ONLY- for software updates).

    I then booted from the APFS HDD drive.
    I launched and ran the installer -- upgrade went off without a hitch.
    Mojave 10.14.1 is build 18b75.

    I then used CarbonCopyCloner to clone my HDD/APFS copy of Mojave to my SSD/HFS+ copy.
    I --DID NOT-- clone the "users folder" (but DID clone everything else).

    When done, I powered down, and then rebooted to my SSD/HFS+ copy of Mojave.

    Booted right up to 10.14.1 in HFS+, and my existing accounts were untouched (again, because I did not clone the Users folder).

    Working fine at this point.

    I just updated mine..did NOT see it in the app store so went to about my mac and system updates and installed it(First time I ever did it that way) my mac was 48 percent charged at the time, did the reboots a few times then I saw a black screen and I was told best thing to do was plug in my charger, so I did and it completed..only thing is when I am at the home screen I did get a message about how the computer restarted "Due to a problem" and that the "Kernal report as been sent to apple" not sure what that was about so I pressed OK..mac seems fine, what do you all think happened anything to be concerned about?

    I encountered this same issue using the direct download of just the 10.14.1 updater. So instead I just went to the App Store, searched for MacOS Mojave, and downloaded the full installer, and installed over my beta build of 10.14. I am now on 10.14.1

    That worked for me too. Software Update through "About this Mac" indicated that I was up-to-date.
