How can update ti beta 8?

Whem i use developertool yo download updates in Appstore appear to he 3 or 4 GB, but inmediately i start downloading it is 12.11GB and no hint about what versión is.

Hi !

Same problem here, when I start update process, it searches for updates and ask for acceptance etc ... then says "your system needs a full installer" asks for acceptance again and starts downloading 12.16 Gb

When the download is done I get the same installer program features asking you on which disk you want to install but mac big sur beta 7 disk is not available.

Looking at info.plist inside installer package content : build is 20A5364d which looks more like beta 6 ID (20A5364e) than 8 (20A5374i).

beta 7 installed on my rig is 20A5374g

Any idea what's going on ?

Thanks

Yah it seems like something caused it to miss the right update and is causing it to default to an older one. Then when it triggers update it sees that the update ID isnt valid for application to the new version and thus it loops into the fail behavior which is to grab the full installer.

What is interesting is that when I get the full installer that full installer doesn't work because it says snapshotting is not supported on my volume even though it is. I wonder if they did something to detect the configuration since all of my normal macs work fine with the 4g to 4i update. I am just going to wait until the next ISO/full installer and upgrade in place from recovery media.

You have to change config settings for securebootmodel to disabled from default  in OC 0.6.1 under misc / security, and clean NVRAM, then it will update from beta 7 to beta 8  in software update

Update ran smoothly.
