    Hi guys!

    I'm on El Capitan Public Beta 5 trying to update to PB6 but it's impossible.
    In the Mac App Store click on updates and update to PB6 but it takes a lot of time. Yesterday it was downloading for about 16 hours and finally it stopped. Then try to update again and it started from 0 and the same happens... 6 hours later it stopped.
    Try to reboot the macbook pro and then tried to update again and the same happens.
    All downloads from safari or any other program works great, but the mac app store downloads are too slowly.

    Is there something to do? am I the only one?

    Since there is only a few weeks before the final El Capitan, it is possible to wait until it becomes publicly available, rather than upgrading to new version, if the current version of El Capitan works well.

    I don't know, because beta version are gradually.. you have to install all of them.
    Another problem is that I can't upgrade any Mac App Store app. Today a wunderlist new version was released and it takes more than 1 day to download 30mb. It's ridiculous.

    The GM will have a full installer. The full installer was itself beta tested on the last release.

    Your download problem still needs to be addressed but that is not Apple.

    Similar problem here. Been trying to update to PB6 since it was released. It gets to approx. 115mb and then dies. The 'Update' button goes from unclickable to clickable. I'll click 'Update' once more and it just flashes and then back again. I haven't been able to update the beta all week.

    Other apps can update via App Store (for example, Wunderlist this evening), just not the Beta. I submit it through the Feedback Assistant, mainly for piece of mind. Not a response.

    Here in Spain there's a lot of people with the same problem and they said that it's a ISP problem. I'm using "Movistar ISP" and it doesn't work, but with other companies there's no problem.
    Hope they will work asap.

    This doesn't seem to be based on the network/ISP for me. I'm in the US. I've tried with my ISP (Verizon FiOS), a T-Mobile LTE Hotspot, a Verizon Hotspot, my company wifi. The results are consistent with all. The download gets to 115mb and then stops.
