Using Software Update is faster and easier than upgrading by other methods, and it might require less storage space to download and install the upgrade. Software Update shows only upgrades that are compatible with your Mac.
If the macOS that you want isn't compatible with your Mac or the currently installed macOS, the installer will let you know, and the App Store might prevent you from downloading it. For example, it might dim the Get button, say that the macOS is not compatible with this device, or say that the requested version of macOS is not available.
This directory contains binaries for a base distribution and packages to run on macOS. Releases for old Mac OS X systems (through Mac OS X 10.5) and PowerPC Macs can be found in the old directory.Note: Although we take precautions when assembling binaries, please use the normal precautions with downloaded executables.
Package binaries for R versions older than 3.2.0 are only available from the CRAN archive so users of such versions should adjust the CRAN mirror setting ( -archive.r-project.org) accordingly.R 4.2.2 "Innocent and Trusting" released on 2022/10/31 Please check the integrity of the downloaded package by checking the signature: pkgutil --check-signature R-4.2.2.pkg in the Terminal application.

This release uses Xcode 13.1 and experimental GNU Fortran 12 arm64 fork. If you wish to compile R packages which contain Fortran code, you may need to download GNU Fortran for arm64 from -project.org/tools. Any external libraries and tools are expected to live in /opt/R/arm64 to not conflict with Intel-based software and this build will not use /usr/local to avoid such conflicts (see the tools page for more details).

Contains R 4.2.2 framework, R.app GUI 1.79 in 64-bit for Intel Macs, Tcl/Tk 8.6.6 X11 libraries and Texinfo 6.7. The latter two components are optional and can be ommitted when choosing "custom install", they are only needed if you want to use the tcltk R package or build package documentation from sources.Note: the use of X11 (including tcltk) requires XQuartz to be installed (version 2.7.11 or later) since it is no longer part of macOS. Always re-install XQuartz when upgrading your macOS to a new major version.This release supports Intel Macs, but it is also known to work using Rosetta2 on M1-based Macs. For native Apple silicon arm64 binary see above.Important: this release uses Xcode 12.4 and GNU Fortran 8.2. If you wish to compile R packages from sources, you may need to download GNU Fortran 8.2 - see the tools directory.

You may also encounter issues if you are trying to download an older version of macOS that your Mac cannot support. Usually when Apple introduces a new Mac it will not be able to run the version of macOS that shipped before the one installed on that Mac. The older macOS might not support certain components in that Mac, for example.
If the old version of the OS you are after predates Snow Leopard and you have a developer account you might be able to get it from developer.apple.com/downloads. If you search within the OS X category you should see downloads for all versions of OS X, at least from version 10.3 to 10.6.

Ugh, I have this very same problem. In both the Command-R and the Option-Command-R approaches to reinstall, I get error messages that a download is missing. Any other ideas? Thanks very much for your help!
Update - I downloaded the current os on to an external hard rive plugged it in and tried again with cmd and R. I doubt it was connected but the only option it gave me was downloading Yosemite, which it did, all the way through this time. I tried to install it but it wouldn't let me as I have a newer version installed.
To download a different version, that =version must have been "purchased" using the Apple-ID currently in charge of the computer AND the version to be installed must be greater or equal what was last running -- you cannot go backward without erasing the drive completely, and to do that, you need "somewhere else to stand" (another instance of a Recovery partition or another working MacOS) -- you cannot 'cut off the tree branch you are standing on'. 2b1af7f3a8
