    If your computer can run Yosemite, it can run El Capitan, which is available from a link on Apple's page here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT206886

    I recently went from Sierra to Yosemite without any issues. When you login to the App Store and click on purchases, do you see it there to download?
