Was just notified of this update but don't see a thread for it. It was dropped on Oct 25th.

Installed via Software Update. Seemed like the standard update we've seen, about 12 minutes overall (not including download) with two reboots. First reboot into the installer and second back into macOS. Progress screen went black toward the end of the macOS boot, then then re-appeared and completed without issue.

OpenCore 0.7.0 and kexts from mid-June on my Big Red machine.

2021-007 update failed here, the update procedure was done but after the reboots the update is not applied, at least the system is still operational but still on 2021-006.

No problem here. If software update fails, try to download the updater here: https://support.apple.com/downloads
Had to do this several times in the past with previous security updates.

I installed 2021-007 using the standalone updater from Apple using a Catalina installation cloned from my main system, running on a spare Kaby Lake system. After the installation succeeded I then cloned the updated installation back to my main system and my second (Z370) system.

All seems to be working fine afterwards.

This worked for me, when the usual Software Update process would not... first time of this issue.

Slight scare when the process stalled out on a restart at the Clover screen and my HD was <gone>... but selecting the "...Prebooter from Preboot" option kept it going, and final after a few auto-reboots, etc. finally back to Catalina login screen. yea!
