My MacBook Pro 2020 tells me there is an update available, downloads Sonoma14.5 then tells me it has a problem and to try again. I have tried again with the same result. Can someone tell me what is going on?

The problem might be a permissions issue, or your internet connection, or some other damage to your macOS system. I suggest downloading Sonoma from the App Store. Launch App Store from the  menu and in the search field type “macos sonoma” (without the quotes, of course) and press Return. When you see the macOS Sonoma group, click on View. Scroll down and check the version number to make sure that it shows 14.5. Then go back up and click on Get.

The download should start, and the installer file (Install macOS Sonoma.app) will be saved to your Applications folder. If it automatically launches when done, QUIT. Make a copy of the file to another location. After making sure that you have a reliable back up of your system, restart in Safe Mode. Go to Applications and launch the installer. Hopefully the process will go smoothly.

If this method fails, I can show you how to acquire the installer using Terminal. Good luck!
