Done multi restarts....no issues (other than usual it relocated my Apache config files to Users/Shared/Relocated Items).

Update doesn't appear to me. I tried with gibMacOS and no luck. Any tip to force the update?
Found the issue: SIP was the culprit here, reseting nvram does the magic.

Updated without issues, OC 0.6.6
