I'm trying to download the OS X Yosemite public beta, but it keeps jumping to 5.07 GB and then saying an error has occurred. Is this happening to anyone else?
Sooooooooo I've been trying to download the beta since it went live yesterday. I logged in, received code, redeemed and started downloading it. However, my connection at time was a joke and I decided to wait to download it later in the day after the servers weren't so loaded. Now, it won't even download at all. As you can see from the pictures, it says "Waiting...", then it gives the error, but you can see, in the last photo, that it thinks (or assumes) that it is downloaded.
My question: Is there anyway to delete the file from my computer and try to re-download? I'm not sure if it may be in any system file folder or not...
Look in the Application Support folder > App store folder> the downloaded file.
For those having trouble, deleting the update journal.plist file in said folder might help in downloading the file again (I did not test as I didn't have this annoying problem). It is worth a shot. All that plist file does is show what you have downloaded from the MAS.
