    I updated to 10.10.3 on my MacMini, but my MB Air does not have this update in the App Store>Updates. Any idea how to get the update to show up?

    wouldn't hurt to run a repair permissions from disk utility though

    Thanks, I was thinking to download it from Apple I would need to dl the entire OS.

    I'll try the disk permissions first though.

    Thanks

    So I downloaded the update for 10.10.3, I go to install and it says "cannot be installed on this disk. This volume does not meet the requirements for this update"

    It's an early 2014 MBA. Drive has 104 GB available on it.

    When checking disk permissions I do get this:

    Ran the fix permissions once already.

    Doing a recovery now, figure that should(fingers crossed) fix it:)

    Had this problem with an earlier update, spent more than 1 hour with Apple with some screen sharing, only option offered in the end was reset my macbook and see if it works (and it worked), else they would have transmited problem to their engineers.
    FYI, the weird thing we found out while on the phone was that in Disk Utility, it showed my disk nearly full whereas it wasn't at all (and "get info" on the disk showed the proper available size)

    So even after a clean install it's not available. I'm downloading the update from Apple now to try again. It did want to install beta 5, but after turning off beta updates I says no updates available again.

    Exactly which version and build number of OS X are you using on this computer?

    That's a beta of 10.10 (the release build was 14A389.) I'm surprised it hasn't expired. Download the full 10.10.3 installer from the App Store and install from that.

    Hmm, that's strange. I just did an Internet restore last night. I turned off beta updates in preferences. Does that change it on Apples end, could I just do another Internet restore?

    Or should I just dl the file? I'd rather to a clean install than an upgrade if possible.

    Thanks for the help.

    If nothing else, you could download the 10.10.3 installer and make a USB installer from that. Internet recovery should have put a version of 10.9 on the computer so I suspect you just did a recovery install. Personally I wouldn't worry about a clean install.

    Yeah, no sense in worrying, I'll just dl the 10.10.3 full and install it. I'll check, but do I dl it from the App Store? Or does Apple provide a direct link?

    Download the full installer from the App Store/Purchases tab.
    If you don't see it in your Purchases, then link through from Apple's Yosemite product page.
    http://www.apple.com/osx/
    Click the "Update Now" link, and that will take you to the right place to download Yosemite.
