    This might seem like a silly question but on our newest iMac 21.5" (current model) I downloaded Sierra from the App Store fine. But now the only button says "Downloaded" and there is nothing I can find to trigger the installation?

    I have rebooted the computer once since the download too. No change.

    Look in the Applications folder and double-click the "Install macOS Sierra" app

    I think it's just called macOS Sierra, without the install.

    Also, it should have auto run the installer upon download.

    It's definitely "Install macOS Sierra"

    huh, I thought when I downloaded it in Apps it just said
    Huh, you're right.

    I could have sworn that it just said macOS Sierra last night.
