For some reason my Mac is stuck at 13.3 beta 2. Somebody here knows a solution to get the RC on my Mac? I tried to reinstall the beta profile. Also tried with a Developer beta, but it says Mac is up to date...

it may simply be that the update has not rolled out for everyone, including you (and me, on one of my 2 macs...)

Seems like a bug.
or it hasn't rolled out for you. or both. or neither.

EDIT: to be fair, if it's not available on my mini tonite, i'd agree: bug. if it is: rollout schedule. we'll see... 🤔

EDIT2: see? rollout. just showed up here (some hours after my macbook air got it). so all is well 👍

This happened to me too. Maybe Apple forgot to release it to certain Macs? I always get it around 20-30 minutes late, but this is the latest it has been. I am now able to get it 8 hours later.
as i mentioned, apple has always rolled out their releases over time, usually (from what i've seen), geographically. so, interesting that my 2 macs, side-by-side, got (for the first time) the update at very different times...

Yes, but the initial reply you replied to states that theirs machine is still on 13.3 beta 2, which was released 3 weeks ago. Obviously, something is wrong there, if they haven't received an update for over 3 weeks now.

Still at times unable to save to pdf; this seems to be intermittent—sometimes ok and sometimes not

Edit: Finally! After deleting Finder Preferences, then booting into Recovery Mode and using Disk Utility to perform First Aid on all the partitions, I can now manipulate folders within iCloud Drive.
(Using First Aid on the Data Volume results in a seemingly endless cycle of errors found, the repaired, then found, …)

Copying (Option-dragging) folders from one folder to another on iCloud Drive results in -36 errors.
I am able copy the individual files without an error.
It started with 13.3b4

So I’ve got a question about the Home architecture upgrade.
I did it on my iPhone and MacBook back in December when it first launched.
Since then I have acquired an iMac, which came installed with Monterey 12.5.
I updated it to Ventura 13.2.1, and obviously the architecture upgrade never showed up.
This morning I put the 13.3 RC on it… and still no option for the home architecture upgrade.
Am I to assume that somehow, between the five seconds of me installing 13.3 and opening the Home app, it downloaded the architecture upgrade?
Or did Apple pull the update from the 13.3 RC?
Or did it already bump itself to the latest architecture simply by the fact that the rest of my devices already had been updated?

I haven't had this issue yet, and just now was able to right click on this page and select "Print Page" and then "Save as PDF..." under the "PDF" Drop Down at the bottom. The PDF opens in Preview just fine.

I can do this, too, at first. But after a while, it won't work and I have to restart to get it to behave. I've trieded disabling almost all login items, and I'm at a loss what to do next. The puzzling thing is that the problem seems to be intermittent, and when it occurs, other basic system functions, such as importing to Music, occur along with it—but if I let it sit for a while and go back to it, the problems sometimes temporarily disappear, only to crop up again later. This is a real puzzler, and its intermittent nature makes it very difficult to troubleshoot. I'm hoping that I won't have to resort to erasing my startup drive and reinstalling, but I'll see what happens.

If you got it last December, then you have the new one. All they did was make sure all the bugs are fixed with the old architecture and re-release it. It isn't pulled.

I opened Disk Utility and selected to repair the Data volume on my startup disk, and it reported that the volume was corrupted, and that the errors had been repaired. I'll see—it's rather suspicious to me that it was so easy to fix. But so far, so good.

Spoke too soon. Back to the drawing board.
