Advice on Apple OS Updates
Make sure you have a backup before updating. I reboot and update with no apps running. If using any 3rd party Security software or VPN, disable or remove it before updating, and make sure you have adequate free space on the volume. (Apple doesn't list required space for OS updates, but lists 26GB or more for upgrades from macOS Sierra or later.) If you have trouble installing the update, try updating from Safe Mode. If all else fails, try downloading the full macOS install from the App store.
