    Hi there. I have downloaded the Mojave 10.14.1 from the Apple site (macOSUpd10.14.1.pkg) (not showing-up on my update list) - and when I try and install it gives me a message saying "MacOS 10.14.1 Update can't be installed on this disk, This volume does not meet the requirements for this update.

    I am currently using (with no problems) the 10.14 release which was the GM build of the last public Beta 18A389 and was wondering if that was the reason ?

    Could potentially wipe, install from scratch and restore apps, settings and data from a Time Machine Backup, but who needs that sort of faff ?

    Any ideas good folks ?

    Just out of the whim here, but shouldn't you be going to system preferences and then software update. They changed it in Mojave to be updated in System Preferences.

    Yes, that's the reason.
    But it's easy to fix it. Download the full Mojave 10.14.1 installer from the App Store, and install it again.

    Yes, I know that (but thanks for the reminder) but it was not appearing there at all, which is why I tried the apple.com/downloads link instead. I will try from the App-Store and try an upgrade from there.

    Appreciate the response guys !

    And it's downloading now, all 6GB of it, (the delta update from the download site was half that), and sure that will work for me. Luckily with 350mbit DL speed it will be with me in a couple of minutes - typically with Virgin Media it's closer to 400mbit so making full-use of that bandwidth tonight.

    If you have beta OS, you would have to download the full installer. I remember when I was on beta OS before the official release of Mojave. Had to download the full installer in order for it to work.

    Yep, the full installer worked a charm. First time I have bothered using a Public Beta, so suspect you were 100% right, so thanks for the advice. I have helped loads of people on here over the years, and this is (I think) the first time that I have had to ask for help, so thank you for all of your prompt (and correct) responses..... every day is a school day !
