    Catalina wouldn't run some of the programs I had installed.
    Apple issued warnings a good two years before ever releasing Catalina that 32 bit programs would no longer work. Aside from the warnings, users should always check to see if their current programs will run with the new release of macOS before downloading and installing it.

    Also, it's a must to make a bootable backup of your current system before upgrading. Much easier to go back that way.

    Yes, but as a relative neophyte, I probably missed that. Going backwards required wiping the computer clean, installing Mojave from the App Store and then reinstalling from my backups or from iCloud. Wasn't hard necessarily but took a fair amount of time.

    You're not alone.... We have had inputs from other users who like you were caught short by upgrading to Catalina. We understand that not everyone is up on the latest news from Apple.

    Glad to hear you successfully installed Mojave and are back in business.

    Tune in to our forums every once in awhile to get the latest news about Apple and its products.

    Regards.

    While my daughter's MBA picked up the 10.15.5 update, my Mac Mini doesn't seem to show the 10.15.5 update yet. It is still sitting at 10.15.4. Software update says that my Mac is up to date which is odd.

    Ashwin it always takes Software Update twenty to thirty seconds to change that message on my iMac.
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Agree w/ Harry - for me that has been an observation for a number of macOS updates lately - this time on my 3 Macs (2 laps + 1 iMac), the 'Software Update' window said my computer was up to date, then after a short wait (as indicated above), the message 'popped up' indicating a new update. Dave

    A restart may also get the update notification.
    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.
    PS: When there is an accident or error, is the tool to blame or is the fool to blame?

    I had and have been recently having the same behavior as RadDave. No updates then after a few minutes it come up. I guess we are all pretty early on these things so maybe a notification would have come up eventually?
