Little snitch network monitor prevented updates being installed

Postby thedean1828 » Sun Jan 21, 2018 5:53 pm

When attempting to apply macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 Supplemental Update, I get a notification that "Little Snitch Network Monitor has prevented updates from being installed".

What is the fix for this?

Here is an update. I went to "LIttle Snitch Configuration ... Preferences" and turned the monitor off. I then rebooted my computer to apply the MacOS update. I no longer received the error message "Little Snitch Network Monitor has prevented updates from being installed". However the update was still not applied. It still shows up as a pending update. Please help.

Same issue here, I'm on 10.13.4 Beta (17E170c).

With earlier macOS versions I sometimes had this same issue, and then I was able to solve it by stopping little snitch network filter for the time to install updates. But now this doesn't seem to work anymore, even when stopping network filter it just tries to install update for a about 10 seconds and then reboots and computer starts without the update being installed.

Any news how to solve this issue? :(

Update to this, I uninstalled Little Snitch, but still couldn't install macOS update, so the problem must be somewhere else. No notification since I tried to install it manually, the "LS prevented updates..." notification was when macOS tried to install updates automatically.
