    So I'm preaching to the converted. ferrarr, do you use Terminal or some other means of creating your USB installer?

    I forgot to add as I had already done it; Make sure you have updated everything (including supplemental updates) before attempting to install Catalina. Apparently Catalina requires the latest safari update for installation.

    Yes, I use Terminal to create the macOS bootable USB installer.

    Right now I’m on my iPad Pro, so I’ll get it done tomorrow.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Apparently Catalina requires the latest safari update for installation.

    Hmmm...??? No mention of any such requirement as that at Apple's site or anywhere else that I can find.

    Only macOS 10.9 listed as a Mac requirement at their download site..

    Elsewhere, non-compatible Mac models are listed that obviusly won't work, at least officially.
