    ran this,

    sudo softwareupdate —set-catalog https://swscan.apple.com/content/ca...ion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog.gz

    I've heard about the El Capitan Beta's not showing up so I figured I'd run it but that probably hurt me even more in the long run because now I get the

    "The operation couldn't be completed. (nsurlerrordomain error - 1012.)" popup on the App Store now..

    so I ran sudo softwareupdate --clear-catalog but I still get the popup. Is there any way to get back to the Public Beta software update path? My 2010 Macbook air saw the Public Beta 2 update and installed it.. when I checked on my 2012 Macbook Pro it wasn't listed so thats when I started troubleshooting.

    Reinstall the public beta from the installer.

    Will that cause me to lose anything?

    No. Make sure you download the latest build from the App Store Purchases tab.

    Well crap.. I saw someone posted the URL to the Beta 2 update along with the firmware update. So I applied both.. I'm now on Beta 2 but still getting that same popup in the App store.

    Any ideas on what I should try now?

    If you have a Time Machine backup from before you ran the command, you could try and replace the com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist at /Library/Preferences/ with the one from your backup. Probably best to close the Mac App Store first, and then reboot.

    That url is for Developer Betas.

    For Public Betas, use https://swscan.apple.com/content/ca...ion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog.gz instead.
