    I usually re-download the latest full installer app in order to create a bootable USB installer media. it first happened with the Mojave installer app, now High Sierra also: the app downloaded from the MAS is only 22.7 MB and if I try to run createinstallmedia I'm getting this error:

    /Applications/Install macOS High Sierra.app does not appear to be a valid OS installer application.

    any idea what's going on? how can I force a re-download of the full installer?

    I can get the full download on the MAS, but it's only 10.13.5 version.

    Are you saying you can get the full 4.2GB installer of 10.13.6 from the MAS now?

    I've already filed a bug report for the MAS product page.

    I just downloaded the 10.13.5 installer off of the App Store and it is actually 10.13.6 just has the wrong description attached to it.

    Downloaded today from App Store. The 10.13.5 listing is incorrect. I still had the installer for the "real" 10.13.5. The installer I downloaded today is really 10.13.6. See version numbers in the "Get Info" screen shot for the two installers:

    Apple still not moving to correct the product page for High Sierra 10.13.6

    The bug report is receiving no attention, if anyone else wants to report also (suggested), the report number is 42085295.

    Yes. Same day as the release of the new mbps.

    So they waited for that before making it official despite being able to force it to download via installinstallmacos.py.

    So it is not so much a bug followed by bug fix. It is more like a secret which is no longer a secret.

    I have tried an hour or so ago to download full installer of macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 via US Mac Appstore and got only 15 MB :)
