I am trying to upgrade from 10.6.8 to 10.9.1. I have a macbook pro 8 1. I downloaded 10.9.1 Maverick from the Apple Store.
When I try to open the upgrade to install on my macbook,, the message says that the system doesn't support the software. Suggestions?

Hmm... that's odd. Did you just DL the update from the App Store and launch it from the Applications folder to install, or did you try to make some kind of USB installer or something?

I downloaded from Apple store. Maybe I need to contact Apple. I think I have a service contract.

Yeah... you have something wrong there. It should install straight away on your machine. Do you maybe have an anti virus or something running that would stop the install?
