Maybe related but I was on Public beta 2 and upgraded to beta 3 via App Store and now it says I have Developer Beta 4 and I don't have any updates at the moment.

My build is 17A315i.

Any thoughts?

EDIT: now I have the 2.33GB update to Public Beta 4. Will update here (anytime in the next week when it's done downloading xD ) when the update is complete. Cheers!

To the people having issues, are you on APFS? I remember i couldnt install updates when i was on APFS (something about apfs preboot error), so i went back to HFS.

Another thing to ask, are you guys trying to update while using an NVME? I havent been able to do that at all even though there is supposed "native support". I have had to install to a normal HDD and then clone to the NVME.

I am using APFS. Booted into verbose mode and the error shows: Error loading kernel cache (0xe). A Google search suggested that I tried using OsxAptioFixDrv2 instead, but same results.
