    Hey guys. As far as I understand it, Public Beta 4 of ELC has been available for a couple weeks now. Some of my friends have been able to update by going to the app store and just checking under updates, however nothing is there for me! Why do I not have access to this update? Anyone else with the same problem?

    Thanks

    It's possible the beta period is over and ELC will be released on Sept 9...

    Or OP is running into the same issue some of us had with PB3. The solution I came across when doing some research into why I wasn't getting PB3 was re-adding the catalog URL:
    Code:
    sudo softwareupdate --set-catalog https://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-10.11beta-10.11-10.10-10.9-mountainlion-lion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog.gz
    
    After that I checked for new software updates in the MAS and it found PB3.

    When PB4 was released I reset the catalog URL back to its defaults and it didn't find PB4. Put the catalog URL back and it found PB4.

    What is command to reset to defaults? I thought I was behind on my updates but I was just missing the PB 4 in App Store under purchases. All this got very confusing today with the pulled updated for PB 5.

    That would be the following:
    Code:
    sudo softwareupdate --clear-catalog
    From the help (softwareupdate -h):
