Does 10.14.2 take a really long time to update?

    Hi, I have a 2015 iMac i5 with a fusion drive. Lately, I've been starting to suspect that the hard drive may be failing, because certain functions seem to be taking a long time to complete, but so far I haven't been able to tell for sure.

    Anyway, the 10.14.2 update process has been running for at least 20 minutes, and is still going (updating from 10.14.1). The progress bar indicates maybe 6 more minutes to go (but it keeps fluctuating). Does this seem like a normal time frame to perform the update?

    Thanks!

    Downloaded in less than 10 minutes, took around 15 minutes to get installed.
    Pretty smooth, IMO.

    It did finish for me, and things appear fine. It sounds like 15-20 minutes is typical, then.

    Thanks!

    Help! I'm using 2015 macbook pro. The update just stuck at 138kb for couple mins and another window showed that the updated is failed. I've restarted and tried again but no luck. Issue not solved yet.

    Do you have a solid network connection? It looks like it failed while downloading the update.
