    I have the latest MacBook Air and I was set to receive beta software updates. Every time I set it to not download betas, it resets itself and downloads them. I change it, lock the changes, but as soon as a beta comes out, it has reset back to receiving them.

    Short of reinstalling, what can I do?

    Running Sierra 10.12.5

    Have you tried the following terminal commands ?

    Code:
     sudo softwareupdate --clear-catalog
    
    And maybe remove appstore preference file

    Code:
    rm $HOME/Library/Preferences/com.apple.appstore.plist
    And then reboot ?

    I was experiencing the same issue... and found these commands about 2-3 weeks ago... this solved the issue for me.
