    My machine continues to show XProtect as v2086 even though “Automatically Check For Updates” is enabled.

    Is there a way to download or force the v2087 update?

    Try:
    Code:
    sudo softwareupdate --background-critical

    The Terminal command seemed to "take", but no joy. Here is the result of my effort:
    "softwareupdate[1482]: Triggering background check with forced scan (critical and config-data updates only) ...

    On which version of macOS are you? v2086 seems rather old.

    KALLT, many thanks for hanging in there with me; 'tis greatly appreciated!

    My OS is 10.12.2 and my machine is a 27" i7 iMac, mid 2010.

    Seems like I bothered you needlessly. Perhaps a case of just not being patient. Still, me thinks your influence played a role.

    At any rate, XProtect just auto updated and all is again right with the world.

    Thanks, again!
